from Mother’s volume ‘Questions and Answers’…..whatever you may want to do in life, one thing is absolutely indispensable, at the basis of everything: the capacity of concentrating the attention. If you are able to gather together the rays of attention and consciousness on one point and can maintain this concentration with a persistent will, nothing can resist itwhatever it may be, from the most material physical development to the highest spiritual one. For studies, sports, all physical or mental development, it is absolutely indispensable. The value of an individual is proportionate to the value of his attention. From the spiritual point of view it is still more important. There is no spiritual obstacle which can resist a penetrating power of concentration. For instance, the discovery of the psychic being, union with the inner Divine, opening to the higher spheres, all can be obtained by an intense and obstinate power of concentrationbut one must learn how to do it.There is nothing in the human or even in the superhuman field, to which the power of concentration is not the key.
