"Any man who can drive safely while kissing a pretty girl is simply not giving the kiss the attention it deserves." - Einstein I swear he taught yoga!
When we travel there is so many new sites to see and activities to try. If we tried them all we might not get to enjoy any of them completely. So we make a choice on focusing on one or two key things in order to really experience them. That's what we'll do with this step.
We'll concentrate. Now that you've gone inward as the previous step instructed. Can you focus your attention on one thing. Maybe it's a thought, or a sound. Maybe just silently saying the word 'Peace'. Maybe you could gently stare at a candle flame. What you focus on doesn't really matter, it's the focus that matters. Asking the mind to concentrate takes a lot of discipline (as mentioned in step 2), but discipline now prepares us to stay present for lifes' sticky situations. Ghandi said "One has to find his peace from within. And peace, to be real, must be unaffected by outside circumstances."
