Now focus your attention on the Centre of Enlightenment (in the middle of the forehead), and suggesting to yourself:

  • The spirit of toleration is developing.
  • Also mental equilibrium

Repeat the above words aloud nine times; and then repeat them mentally nine times.

Contemplate upon the following:

  • Physical sensibility
  • Weather-induced sensibility
  • Disease-induced sensibility
  • Mental impressions
  • Pleasure and pain
  • Prosperity-adversity
  • Emotional response:
  • Contradictory ideas
  • Contradictory behaviour
  • Contradictory interests

I am subject to such responses, but I wish to mitigate their influence. If these responses grow, my own powers would decline The less influenced I am by these, the greater my powers. Thus the cultivation of toleration is the great secret of success in my life.
