Think of nothing else but being there, sitting at 3rd eye center, just being there, we create the process of withdrawal of attention.
It is quite different from all other systems of attention we use in this world, focusing attention on something, away from ourselves.
Even if we want to think of image of ourselves inside our head, it is still taking attention away from ourselves out to the image we’re creating.
Don’t create image of yourself, little fellow sitting there, it’s not you – you are the one looking at it!
Sometimes we make mistake thinking that being behind the eyes is making little image of ourselves.
And who is looking at that? -You!
That’s where you are supposed to be, not where the image is.
Don’t make image of yourself, because you’ll make image outside, in the darkness in front of your eyes – it’s not You!
To concentrate our attention of being there, behind the eyes, it has to be a feeling we are there.
Concentration of attention is Being there, behind the eyes.
Don’t try to force yourself, don’t strain yourself, don’t try to look with these eyes at all, it’s purely imaginary.
Imagine standing here, no strain, because you’re using different faculty of imagination.
When you are able to figure out that You are there, and you put your attention on being there and no other exercise, you will find out that you are close to the 10th door.
Lights will come up, experiences will come up, just by being there. Even if you do nothing else.
Even if you just pull your attention back, withdraw your attention to that point, you get spiritual experiences straight away.
Actually it’s very simple, it becomes difficult because we used to put our attention outside, that’s what makes it difficult.
Put your attention on being there, withdraw your attention to 3rd eye center, feel you are behind the eyes and spiritual experiences will be coming up.
Be behind the eyes and think of your Beloved with Love & Devotion.
