1 Unity

The preceding exercises aim to restore your sense of unity, which your mental wandering or "dispersion" has eroded.

Feeling at one with yourself opens the door to all kinds of possibilities, and prevents you from hiding behind excuses and irresolute thinking. If you are at one with yourself, your will belongs to you, and is not imposed on you from outside.

Many people believe they have willpower, but in reality they have simply assumed the will of their parents, teachers, peers etc. All these influences stifle their own willpower and prevent any real voluntary behavior. This is not willpower as Dr. Vittoz understands it. The concentration exercises on the number 1, which we will look at a little later on, can restore this sense of unity, which modern life tends to erode.
