Focusing on HIM means focusing your attention on your awareness which again means holding your I (Conscious Mind) in your Am (Subconscious Mind/Present Moment).
To reiterate - Present Moment Awareness is where it is at. Staying completely present in your own Awareness is being a witness to your body and the body of the world without taking thought aka judgement.
When you focus the mind, it stops all thoughts in the same way all thoughts stop when you are listening intently to someone. Once all thought stops, your attention begins to marinate in your own Awareness - bringing to life the Soul.
