The power of attention is a practical and functional element in human’s psyche. Similarly to the heart and brain in the body, it is created along with human beings. As man is pure and devoid of any psychological forms or bonds, his attention is focused on things which are simply existing like the body and the present moment. This state is observable in children but they are not aware of it.
Along with the journey of life, the attention of man is focused on conditional teachings like psychological bonds and forms, known as identity, personality, or “I”. The change in the subject of attention from identity or personality to pure Self and the present moment is called “awakening”.
