One-Pointedness of Mind

by Michael Simmons on Oct 31, 2009

Every action reinforces itself and sows the seeds for a new habit.

Therefore, little things (decisions, thoughts, moments when no on is looking) matter immensely, because they are what lead to big things.

The best way to build one-pointedness of mind is to focus on doing all the little things in the direction you want on the straightest path you see in the moment.

The benefit of one-pointedness of mind is more speedy realization of what you focus on.

If we are focusing on the wrong things, we’ll learn that it’s wrong sooner and change course.

If we are focusing on the right things, our actions will be self-rewarding.
