“You’re the captain. Get over the helm and start steering. Take control. There’s something going on here you can be a part of. … You’ve got it. And the clock is running. And it is going to stop, invariably. But right now, you’re alive. Enjoy. Enjoy the experience.”- Prem Rawat, Spiritual teacher
We get what we concentrate upon. But how do we get it? According to Jane Roberts, “You get what you concentrate upon.” That is, if you concentrate upon success, you will get success. If you concentrate upon hate, you will get hate. If you concentrate upon your life, you will get your life.
But what if we concentrate upon the wrong thing? What do we do to protect ourselves? What do we do to protect our minds?
Because of your intense concentration, be careful not to miss the wonder that is happening around you. Wonder is happening around you. Pay attention to it. Pay attention to love. Pay attention to happiness. Pay attention to other people. Above all, pay attention to yourself. But if you don’t concentrate on the right thing, you miss it.
If you want love to dominate your life, concentrate on love thoughts. If you want happiness to dominate your life, concentrate on happiness thoughts. You can find happiness right where you are just by paying attention. You can find love right where you are just by paying attention. Whatever you want in your life, pay attention to it.
But if you don’t pay attention to love, you miss love. And if you don’t pay attention to happiness, you miss happiness. And if you don’t pay attention to yourself, you miss yourself. What are you concentrating upon?
