Words of Wisdom by Swami Satchidananda
- A One-pointed Mind
"When the mind is concentrated, it gains
more strength. Anything that is dissipated
loses its strength. If you gather all the
thought forms and concentrate on one idea
or object, the mind will reveal the inner
secret of that idea. That is what inventors
do. They are deeply concentrated, their minds
are one-pointed, so nature reveals its
secrets to them. Because these individuals'
minds were one-pointed, they could penetrate
the secret of the atom. That control, that
one-pointedness is possible. With that you
can gain anything you want in this world.
There is nothing in this world that a
one-pointed mind cannot gain.
"God bless you. OM Shanti, Shanti, Shanti."
