Are you able to concentrate on God and Just God alone and pray without any thoughts interfering the prayers ? 1.Are you the one doing just lip movements while praying,but wander in a different world full of one thought jumping over to the next? 2.This split second intrusion of your thoughts (whether negative or positive) during prayers really haunting you ? Is this making you guilty ? If it is so, believe me …..you are not alone. Is it because our brains have multiple components,each doing different jobs in quick succession, thus making us, difficult to concentrate ? Are these intrusive thoughts, a basic human nature ? ( since we can not stop thoughts from the brain) Can you control your mind when you are already burdened with your ‘Life’ ? (burden of life is a reality for all of us). Is it possible to override these thoughts ? How to solve this problem ? So many questions…..but I am finding very difficult to get one perfect answer (though plenty of answers are available on the net,which I am not convinced) which helps to really concentrate on God nothing but God . I don’t have an answer.Do you have one ? Please guide me.

Puddle Thoughts……. “Imagine a Puddle waking up one morning and thinking This is an interesting world I find in, Fits me rather neatly, Does n’t it ? In fact it fits me staggeringly well, must have been made to have me in it !’ This is such a powerful idea that – as the Sun rises in the sky & the Air heats up and as the Puddle gets smaller & smaller ,it still frantically hanging on to the notion that everything is going to be alright, because the world is meant have him in it, mind you it was built to have him in it….so the moment he disappears…..catches him rather by surprise. I think this may be something we need to be on the watch out for.” Douglas Adams, The Salmon of Doubt What way our Life is different from Puddle thoughts ? We always think we are eternal & think that our death is million years away and go on with our mundane activities,fighting with neighbours, harbouring jealousy, busy with gossip, burning the body with hatred, even disrespecting our elders, younger, and kith & kin, Behave arrogantly ….forgetting that our life can end …the next second. Don’t we all waste our our precious time in never ending worries & Useless fights? So let us start enjoining every second of our life !
