Keep your attention focussed on the Centre of Vital Energy and say to yourself:

  • "I shall develop in myself the capacity to bear any predicament; I shan't be vanquished by circumstance."

Repeat the above sentence aloud 9 times; and then repeat it mentally 9 times.

Pursue your contemplation as follows:

  • He who is impatient, does not know how to wait for the right occasion; his mind is ever restless.
  • Restlessness upsets the mind; it undermines memory and the power of concentration.
  • It is very necessary to exercise patience.
  • I shall be patient.
