'Focus' Chapter


There is no such thing as “the real world”, but there is such a thing as reality. Nature abhors a void. New research has found that there is even no void state in the mind. You are never thinking “nothing”, you literally cannot.

Reality is focus. You don’t want “everything”, absolutely no one does. No one wants it all. They can’t include it all in their focus, but you want some things and getting those things is up to you. If you seek to get “things”, you will get nothing, because wanting things for the sake of having things is wanting nothing, so you get what you want.

I persist in what I do for focus. I falter in what I do for lack of focus.

“It’s not what’s happening to you now or what has happened in your past that determines who you become. Rather, it’s your decisions about what to focus on, what things mean to you, and what you’re going to do about them that will determine your ultimate destiny.” Anthony Robbins (American advisor to leaders)

“Our thoughts create our reality — where we put our focus is the direction we tend to go.” Peter McWilliams

“The key to success is to focus our conscious mind on things we desire not things we fear.” Brian Tracy (American television host)

Renewed Focus

Focus is seen as very important. People will do a lot to gain and keep focus and at the same time also undermine focus. Seems like a very in and out thing, does it not? Is it that focus is… Seek More

Choice Of Focus

I will make a challenging statement, and my intention is not to offend. You don’t see what is there, no one does. Whenever you see anything, you see only the part of you that is there. The quality of your… Seek More

Where Is The Problem?

We all will have a focus, but how do we know we are focused? How do we even know what focus is? If you conform to a standard you’re kind of being controlled by the creators of that standard instead… Seek More

Lived Values

Choose wisely what you focus. Where we were mistaken before in our choices was in identification. Believing that causes in our lives are “out there.” Subscribing to the delusion that there can be any such thing as external causes. Law… Seek More

You Get What You Want

Spiritual movements often disempower people. This whole thing about “Your ego makes you suffer. Don’t be who you think you are and you can be happy. It’s the “only way”.” In my experience, it isn’t that people are egotistical that’s… Seek More
