Concentration

Concentration is a necessary quality in our life. Without concentration, even the most mundane ordinary task like making a cup of tea is impossible. Meditation helps us to realise how distracted we are, if we continue to meditate with patience our concentration ability will become better and better.

Have are a couple of activities to help us to improve our concentration:-

1- juggling

(How to make your own juggling balls – for each ball you need 2 balloon and uncooked rice. Cut away the long neck of balloons. Fill one balloon with appropriate amount of rice with help of funnel. Wrap the second balloon over first balloon.)

2 – recite poem. Here is one for you:

AUTOBIOGRAPHY IN FIVE CHAPTERS
Portia Nelson

1) I walk down the street.
There is a deep hole in the sidewalk
I fall in.
I am lost…
I am hopeless.
It isn’t my fault.
It takes forever to find a way out.

2) I walk down the same street.
There is a deep hole in the sidewalk.
I pretend I don’t see it.
I fall in again.
I can’t believe I’m in the same place.
But it isn’t my fault.
It still takes a long time to get out.

3) I walk down the same street.
There is a deep hole in the sidewalk.
I see it is there.
I still fall in…it’s a habit
My eyes are open; I know where I am;
It is my fault.
I get out immediately.

4) I walk down the same street.
There is a deep hole in the sidewalk.
I walk around it.

5) I walk down another street.
