So now there are two places where one can put their attention.
First is the outside world, where if you pay attention, you have a high probability of becoming successful. Wherever your interests are, it’s relatively easier to pay attention there. So, attention is connected to passion and interest. If you love cricket or baseball, then your attention is already there, you don’t have to put in any external efforts. This is among the top stages of Meditation.
Success is basically the outcome of paying attention to the outside world. But no matter how successful you become in the outer world; it doesn’t guarantee your mental peace. Nevertheless, this is very necessary as this is the preliminary stage, just like the kinder garden.
If you don’t know how to pay attention outside to become a well-to-do person then all this spirituality, peace of mind, happiness; are just a bunch of meaningless words.
