Journey With Eckhart Tolle

Attention is the key to transformation – and full attention also implies acceptance. Attention is like a beam of light – the focused power of your consciousness that transmutes everything into itself. – Eckhart Tolle
I have for some time been working on my focus. Starting with my exercise routine in the mornings. My mind wanders incessantly, no matter how hard I try to focus on my exercises. Understand, as I do, that concentrating on each activity will generate and pass into my body powerful energy; I accept concentration as necessary.
Wavering from my attempts to focus is not an option for me. I will continue with, ‘full attention implies acceptance.’ I have accepted the concept but have not yet mastered the application of attention or focus.
On attaining focus, I will use a ‘beam of light – the focused power of my consciousness,’ And this will ‘…transmute everything into itself. …’ Could this be living beyond the mind?

I have been experiencing some difficulty focusing the power of my consciousness so that it transmutes everything into itself.
As I focus on what I am doing (once more using exercising as an example), my thoughts intensify efforts to divert my attention. And they seem to be successful in achieving diversion.
I am not one to succumb to this, so I continue striving to focus. I hope that there will come a time when my focus will overcome the diversion created by my thoughts.
I recall a physician, who diagnosed me as having ADD, explaining that the diversion of focus is an effect of this condition.
But I will soldier on until I get this right. In the meantime, I will not be disappointed by my perceived failures because I see failures as opportunities.
