INCREASING FOCUS... in a world where WE TALK TOO MUCH


        The animals don't talk so much, so a dog's focus can be better than ours.
          
        You don't have to build a hut on the top of a cliff, but it worked for me. The important thing is to imbue your Mind, heart and soul
in silence.

        Silence is the greatest doctor of all.

        The other great doctor is laughter. And once you've had a whole lot of silence, you're
going to need the laughter.

         So we're at the stage where we have to
teach our monkey-like mind to focus. We can't just stare at the Eye of the cosmos, because we don't know where that Eye is yet.

         So once again we're looking for a statement that is difficult to understand,
 yet something that compels our intelligence.
         Here is one such statement that I've worked with for years:

BEFORE ABRAHAM WAS, I AM.

Focus on this statement with all your heart and soul and Mind, and you will have a breakthrough.
        No one can tell how long it can take. It's a matter of passion, the action of no-action, determination, and the  need to answer the question.

        My question was something like - "How can beauty and ugliness be two sides of the same coin?"
         If you're looking for the answer, you can find your own question.

          Make sure there are no intellectual handles to it... nothing the  philosophical-
rational mind can wrestle with. That would
be a distraction.

          We're learning about focus, not distraction. We have too many distractions.

           Imagine the sound of a heavy ball-peen 
hammer hitting a steel anvil. The hammer is swung by a strong, muscular man who knows exactly what he wants to hit.

          This is the kind of sound we want. Or imagine the sound of a heavy, well-built bell
ringing in the core of your Mind.

                     
                               *


          (I want to build just such a bell on the cliff-top. I want the bell to announce the miracle
of the Nag Hammadi find.)


           BEFORE ABRAHAM WAS, I AM.
