What is Concentration?

Concentration

The action or power of focusing all one's attention.Concentration is the ability to direct one’s attention in accordance with one’s will. It means control of the attention. It is the ability to focus the mind on one subject, object or thought, and at the same time exclude from the mind every other unrelated thoughts, ideas, feelings and sensations.


 Types of Concentration:

With in yogic life Concentration is extremely important & essential for yoga-sadhana. Not only in yogic life but also to attain a higher destination in worldly life, concentration is essential.

  There are many times of concentration.when we say concentration, usually the awareness doesn't come into our intellect that many types of concentration are hidden in this subject. Concentration exist when there is pin-pointed awareness.Otherwise it won't be full concentration.If there is awareness of this or that,then concentration is incomplete. Due to that ,our yoga is not going to be completely intense.It will not be such intense yoga that the fire is fully ignited,burning & extremely filled with light.A very mild stage of yoga would be there, but it will not be a powerful one.Thus there will not be a powerful experience also.

5 Types Of Concentration  are :

1) Concentration of Thoughts
2) Concentration of Viram(Pause) 
3) Concentration of Desires 
4) Concentration of Aim
5) Concentration of Happiness.

Of the Many types of concentration, the first one is 

Concentration of Thoughts :
Concentration of Thoughts


 It is the Natural nature of the mind to keep thinking something or someone.However , our minds should not wander here & there.they should remain bound to whatever thoughts are essential.They should not think wasteful thoughts, nor should there be the leakage of thoughts.such a state of mind has concentration of thought.Creating more thoughts in the mind has become the nature of man,while sitting in the hall, to keep thinking about what tasks still have to be finished today.he is making an entire agenda while sitting in the hall.It doesn't happen that the mind is focused on whatever we have to listen to,or wherever it should be focused.

Concentration of Viram(Pause) :


Another type of concentration is Concentration of  talking a pause.It is the concentration of giving rest to mind, the intellect & to karma. Viram means applying a full stop. wherever the mind, intellect & speech have to be given a pause or full-stop, they immediately have to come to a stop.It should not be the case that the intellect takes us somewhere with compulsion. It should be under our control such that whatever we wish to think, we think that only & that much only.Whenever we want to apply a brake, er can apply it & instantaneously everything comes to a state of rest. There is a great significance of viram.is Someone keeps writing on and on and doesn't apply full-stop, then lots of confusion emerges. One Full-stop makes a lot of difference.  

Concentration of Desires :
Concentration of Desire

A third type of concentration is the concentration of desires & wishes.If there are too many desires & wishes, then the person is riding as if upon two horses.If a person rides upon two horses without the reins,then what would be his state? If desires are horses ,then one who rides on them would surely be a crazy or wisdom-less fellow,because desires are such that they hang a man upside down.

Concentration of Aim :
Concentration of Aim

Fourth is concentration of Aim.Our Aim should be one.If our aim keeps changing, the how we will we concentrate? The rhythm of thoughts would be broken.Many people have the nature & quality of having one aim today & another aim tomorrow.They are not steady in there minds.They don't set an ultimate goals.So we should Concentrate on one Aim only.

Concentration of Happiness :

Concentration of Happiness

Finally, there is the concentration of happiness. We should not remember painful matters,those through which the soul again experiences waves of sorrow. Don't remember such things you may feel sorrow.  Remember such points which can give happiness to your mind.If you want to talk,then talk about the things of happiness in your life.If you want remember, then remember the incidents of happiness.How nice those days were!

If we practice all of these types of concentration, then our concentration will thoroughly increases.

Negative emotions and negative thinking mask your Inner Beauty:
RESENTMENT, ANGER, HATRED, RUDENESS, REVENGE AND VIOLENCE– implant inner hostility, sap energy and build a spiteful, vindictive nature that shows on your face.

JEALOUSY AND ENVY – embitter and dishonor you and your face suffers the consequences.

WORRY AND FEAR paralyses the mind, blocking ideas for resolving their cause. And our face pays the price.
CRITICISM AND PRE JUDICE – create a cynical intolerance that shows on your face.

HYPOCRISY – sullies your integrity and your face can’t hide it.

SELF-PITY AND MOODS, GUILT AND REGRETS– debilitate you and lower your dignity. And your face shows it.

GREED, LUST, AND SELFISHNESS – undermine self-respect and alienate friends; your face suffers again.

Each of the above helps create a facial mask that hides your Inner Beauty
. And every time the negative emotion arises, the mask becomes more firmly fixed. Your health suffers too.



5 WAYS TO TRACE YOUR INNER BEAUTY


5 WAYS TO TRACE YOUR INNER BEAUTY

1 – Be Generous
      Be generous. As simple as it sounds -this is the reality. Being generous will enhance the perception you receive for what you give. Get yourselves to volunteer in your nearest shelter home – sponsor/tutor a child, donate for a worthy cause. Trust me, lending a hand to the needy does a lot of good in your own life and of what you share with others too. Now, that’s what I call B.E.A.U.T.Y.

2 – Know Your Worth (KYW)
      Look into the mirror today and own your self-believe and confidence. If you feel beautiful, your inner beauty will fill your thoughts with positive energy. Instead of finding your image, focus on your three favorite features and earn your worth up! If you still feel like there’s a flaw holding you back, learn to overcome it. Be bold, love yourself.
3 – Push the NEGATIVITY away
      With the fashion world globalizing, you may think a generous physique or a ‘V’ shaped face makes one attractive. However, researches found that whatever you focus on, shapes your brains – A positive attitude goes a long way to fixing your self image. Eliminate your negative thoughts about your body because your thinking becomes stronger and habitual. So reverse your mind and tell yourself that ‘You are beautiful’. Easy isn’t it ?
4 – SMILE More 
      Appreciate your best assets that’s plastered on your face. Go ahead and smile, appreciate this gift of life without any sarcasm or wrong thinking as this will give your life a fine purpose of living. Remember, outer beauty can give you a glance, so smile with your heart cause it’s the inner reflection that makes someone to stay.

5 – Be the REAL beauty that YOU are
      You are beautiful if you truly believe that you are. What everyone sees is the reflection of who you are on the inside. Feel and embrace yourself – go out there, there’s a whole world waiting for the beautiful you. Appreciate the little things around you – It gives a feeling of pure that will definitely create deep satisfaction.
