THE SECRET OF CONCENTRATION
by Swami Amar Jyoti

It takes time to quiet the mind. We sometimes feel as if noise and quiet are two different things, but if the mind is peaceful and settled inside, outer noises will not disturb you. So noise is a state of mind. We can be in any situation and still remain quiet inside. Once you achieve this inner silence, even if you are very busy, working the whole day, you can maintain that relaxed state. This is what is achieved through meditation, yoga, and other practices. Once you become perfectly quiet and settled within, your concentration is complete. Then you can achieve anything. Many have applied this in work and various accomplishments, but the main purpose for concentration is to attain inner wisdom.

Today we often think that to be busy and hectic means we are really living. Actually this is a sign of dissipation and distraction. Therefore we do not achieve much, even if we want to. The secret of success is concentration, but concentration cannot be achieved if the mind is disturbed, restless or agitated. That inner silence is golden. It gives you whatever success you want, including worldly success if that is your desire. Once you have achieved concentration, any question, secret or innermost mystery will be revealed to you. You will be able to understand how to solve any problem, whether outer or inner.

Often we become confused and cannot see how to resolve a given situation. This is all due to the mind’s restlessness. If you were concentrated you would see the answer right away, and follow that. If you apply concentration spiritually that is the best way, because then your inner consciousness will awaken. That does not mean material success should suffer. We can extend this point and say that God is maintaining this entire creation with perfect concentration. Imagine if God would be disturbed: all the galaxies would fall apart. They are all standing because of His perfect concentration. We call this samyam in Sanskrit, which means concentration that is pinpointed and perfected.
