Shifting The Attention

Our mind is a mysterious device.

A couple of months back I read the book “The Power of Now A Guide to Spiritual Enlightenment” by Eckhart Tolle. In his book, he mentioned that in any unpleasant situation our mind is capable of shifting the attention to a desirable state of mind.

That’s exactly what happened today.

In my hometown, there is a place called Bada Bazaar. It is the main market of the town. A very crowded place in the evening. I remember going there a few of years back and it used to be very stressful because of obvious reasons.

Earlier visiting that place was only about completing the chores and returning back to home as soon as possible, but this time, I shifted my attention to observing the things around me and the stress went away.

It was really awesome. It is difficult to express in writing because I am out of words.

I believe, it is something which could only be felt.

Shifting the focus is indeed the best way to manipulate the mind for the better outcome and peace of mind.
