Practice Spiritual Concentration-Tozer

   The following is one of my favorite writings of A.W. Tozer, he is someone you need to know:
    Retire from the world each day to some private spot.  Stay in the secret place till the surrounding noises begin to fade out of your heart and a sense of God's Presence envelops you.  Deliberately tune out the world.  Listen for the inward Voice till you learn to recognize it.  Stop trying to compete with others.  Give yourself to God, and then be what and do what you are without regard t what others think.  Reduce your interests to a few.  Don't try to know what will be of no service to you.  Avoid the digest type of mind--short bits of unrelated facts, cute stories and bright sayings.  Learn to pray inwardly every moment.  After a while you can do this even while you work  Practice candor, childlike honesty, humility.  Read less, but read more of what is important to your inner life.  Call home your roving thoughts.  Gaze on Christ with the eyes of your soul.  Prace spiritual concentration.
