Attention Shift

If something is getting you down, here's a technique that never fails to work. It's simply a matter of raising the consciousness, of shifting the attention to the ECK and away from what is bothering you.

All you have to do is this: Stop thinking about the difficulty, whatever it is, and think about the ECK, Divine Spirit, instead. This is the complete rule.

It is really just shifting the attention from one point to another.

Thinking from the End

Thinking from the end means the ability to visualize your desires and give them life by filling them with feeling. Think of a goal, then set intermediate steps leading to it. You can practice this as a spiritual exercise during the day with any goal you might have.

To reach the state of God-Realization, put yourself in the ECK Master's shoes and each time you confront a problem ask: What would the Mahanta do in this situation? Then do it. That's thinking from the end.

The ECK is continually pressing forward for expression through you. Thinking from the end is the creative process that makes life a controllable and enjoyable thing.
