Words of Wisdom by Swami Satchidananda
- View SourceA 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."

The best way to clean your system is to use sound. Simply choose any holy name you like, and keep repeating it. Let your body vibrate with that frequency. In the beginning you have to concentrate on that vibration within you. But, as you continue, every cell in your body will begin to repeat your mantram or your prayer; then the whole system, the whole personality, body, mind, everything will vibrate on that wavelength. The holy word is like a radio wave.
When a mantram is given to you, you tune your personality to a particular frequency. It's just like tuning a radio. The cosmic music that comes from God is always being transmitted. God never stops transmitting all the beautiful things. Some simply don't tune their heart radios to the proper frequency. Instead, they tune it to the wrong frequency and get atmospheric disturbance.
With practice, you'll be able to tune your heart radio. You will become a good receiver. Only then is the proper communication possible. Communication brings communion. Real communion is possible only when you tune your entire personality to God's frequency.
