I have written a short story several years ago, titled “The Power of Thoughts”. It is a story about a yogi and his disciple, who arrived to the big city with no money, but they needed food and a place to stay. The story is about the importance of concentration and visualization.
“One day, a yogi and his disciple arrived to the big city. They had no money with them, but they needed food and a place to stay. The disciple was sure that they were going to beg for their food, and sleep in the park at night.
“There is a big park not far from here. We can sleep there at night”, said the disciple.
“In the open air?” Asked the yogi.
“Yes”, responded the student.
The yogi smiled and said: “No, tonight we are going to sleep in a hotel and eat there too”.
The student was amazed. “How?”
“Come and sit down”, said the yogi.
They both sat down on the ground and the yogi said:
“When you focus your mind intently on any subject, it comes to pass.”
The yogi closed his eyes and started to meditate with full concentration. After about ten minutes he got up and started to walk, with his disciple following him. They walked through several streets and alleys, until they arrived to a hotel.”
