We are always connected with the universal (cosmic) mind. Through Muraqaba this cosmic energy is stored in abundance in our mind. Once stored, this energy should be used correctly. That is why it is imperative to avoid all the habits and mental states that waste that stored up energy. This energy is instrumental in Muraqaba and it activates those senses that open in the spiritual realm.
If we are not going to control our mental state then the energy will flow from the higher (aaIa) to the lowest (isfal) senses and eventually be lost in the lower senses. That is why the mind needs to be controlled and focused on one point as much as possible. In the beginning apathy, confusion and irritability come to play and you feel heaviness or burden but later on it gets normal.
Lowering nervous tensions and mental pressures are also important. By using the power of the will, the mind should be concentrated and detached so it will get less involved in the mental confusions. There are information items that bring sadness and there are those that bring happiness. In both conditions control your emotions. Avoid actions that cause the loss of nervous energy; for example speaking loudly, irritability, anger, apathy, unnecessary worries, over zealous sexual tendencies and so on. Apply moderation in all these matters to control the mental aptitude. Having increasing control over the different actions of the mind leads to a condition in which the mind becomes submissive to the will.
The mind remains active subconsciously all the time and it influences all our activities. When the mind accepts the influence of Muraqaba then even subconsciously it remains focused. However, factors like the way of thinking, environment and worry are hurdles to this focused state. It is impossible to control the effect of environment beyond a certain point. However, you can change the way of thinking so that the mental concentration is not compromised. Patience, thankful ness, faith, reliance and detachment are those qualities that free the mind from doubts and worries and take it to the highest level. By adopting good manners and courtesy, you can move the mind away from evil and lower thoughts. By using the will power, you can keep the mind away from undesired and evil thoughts. When you are confused, you will remain confused wherever you may go.
Divide the daily routine so the mind will not go astray by being idle for long. Spend free time on positive hobbies and avoid waste of the mental and physical energy on trivial activities. Reading good books of knowledge or of literature, writing, painting or similar activities are helpful. Engage in routine exercises and athletics. Avoiding banal talk helps in increasing spiritual knowledge.
