Can someone explain the proper nature of dharana? In Dayspring of Youth M states that "Concentration as the world knows it is different in the inner worlds. When we project our minds into the substance of a thing - for thought is penetrative - we prevent its approach to our minds" He goes on to say that true concentration is an objective process of uniting our minds to the inner intelligence of a thing, through which its intelligence "brings birth to a composite mass of atoms. . . that returns to us". When I concentrate on things such as tattvas, the cross, the empty circle, there is a definite feeling associated with each one. Is this what he refers to? Calling up this feeling before the soul, rather than burying tempests of thoughts beneath a piece of imagination like Samael spoke of? A clearer explaination would be greatly appreciated.

The Gnostic Meditation course provides an in-depth and clear explanation of concentration. I recommend studying the whole course, but particularly the section on concentration in regards to your question.

To establish concentration is to control our attention through willpower, and in turn control our actions, to consciously and willfully control our behavior in all three brains.
