Concentration in Meditation

Concentration during meditation requires conscious focus.

However, this type of concentration differs from the focus we typically use during problem-solving or tasks.

When meditating, we use the expressions ‘observe’ or ‘gaze upon’.

These observations and gazes occur through my eyes, ears, nose, mouth, and body, leading to a concentration on my internal experiences.

Since it is about observing with an open mind rather than having will or intention, the term ‘mindfulness’ is more valid than ‘concentration’.

Therefore, there is no reason to perceive meditation ‘concentration’ as too difficult or feel any barriers to entry.

Because it is a basic form of concentration that everyone possesses, such as attentively looking at something through our eyes or listening to sounds by focusing our ears.

It’s not about ‘concentration’, but about ‘mindfulness’.
