The only way to put an end to the ruler of these negative thoughts and emotions is to develop awareness.
An artist paints with focus; the painting becomes complete only through ekagrata (one-pointedness). Similarly, whatever is our goal, we need focus on that to make it complete.
We need to focus on our destination.  Let the thoughts arising in your mind pass by, like watching scenery through the window of a car. The thoughts cannot affect you if you don't allow them to capture your attention.
The mind always has expectations. In order to experience pure consciousness, this nature of the mind must disappear.
Let us focus on what we can give to others—not on what we can get for ourselves. Only then can we bring about a total transformation in our global family.
How to attain concentration? There are no short cuts. Constant practice is needed. In the beginning, it is a great thing if by chance we get even one or two minutes of concentration in an hour. We should make continuous and sincere effort without stopping until we gain one pointed concentration.
Love is the most natural thing for humans. We should perform all our actions, remaining focused on love.
We should acquire control of the mind and possess the power to stop it, like the brakes of a new car reduce the speed and stop the vehicle whenever necessary.
