Concentration means gathering of all the scattered movements of consciousness into a single point, place, object, thought, idea, condition, state or movement. <ref>http://incarnateword.in/cwm/03/appendix-to-questions-and-answers-1929#p9</ref> <ref>http://incarnateword.in/cwm/04/23-december-1950#p7</ref> <ref>http://incarnateword.in/cwsa/29/concentration-and-meditation#p3 </ref>
 
Concentration does not mean meditation; on the contrary, concentration is a state one must be in continuously, whatever the outer activity. By concentration I mean that all the energy, all the will, all the aspiration must be turned only towards the Divine and His integral realisation in our consciousness. <ref>http://incarnateword.in/cwm/16/letters-to-a-young-sadhak-vi#p2 </ref>
Concentration is an active state. You may concentrate mentally, you may concentrate vitally, psychically, physically, and you may concentrate integrally. Concentration or the capacity to gather oneself at one point is more difficult than meditation. You may gather together one portion of your being or consciousness or you may gather together the whole of your consciousness or even fragments of it, that is, the concentration may be partial, total or integral, and in each case the result will be different. <ref>http://incarnateword.in/cwm/04/25-december-1950#p12</ref>
