4. Continuous concentration means an even, unbroken flow of thought and is the result of patient, persistent, persevering and well-regulated system. 5. Great discoveries are the result of long-continued investigation. The science of mathematics requires years of concentrated effort to master it, and the greatest science -- that of the Mind -- is revealed only through concentrated effort. 6. Concentration is much misunderstood; there seems to be an idea of effort or activity associated with it, when just the contrary is necessary. The greatness of an actor lies in the fact that he forgets himself in the portrayal of his character, becoming so identified with it, that the audience is swayed by the realism of the performance. This will give you a good idea of true concentration; you should be so interested in your thought, so engrossed in your subject, as to be conscious of nothing else. Such concentration leads to intuitive perception and immediate insight into the nature of the object concentrated upon. 7. All knowledge is the result of concentration of this kind; it is thus that the secrets of Heaven and Earth have been wrested; it is thus that the mind becomes a magnet and the desire to know draws the knowledge, irresistibly attracts it, makes it your own.
This week I was focused on imagination as a virtue and also investigating what I believed about Charlie, God, the words you speak, and the promises in the Bible. I held my thoughts on the relationship between belief and manifestation. I believe I received great insight, but it is difficult to put into words. Maybe another post this week.
