Remain Alert and Observe
Meditating, while remaining alert and observant, enables us to easily experience pure (clear) levels of awareness or states of consciousness.
~Roy Eugene Davis
Meditation is a practice but it is also the goal of the practice. It is resting in the awareness of our pure essence of being. When you feel yourself move from concentration into a more peaceful, tranquil state rest there. Remaining alert and observant allows us not to miss that peak experience. Even though these experiences may seem short, these tranquil moments are what affect our physical and our mental states and if you are so inclined, our spiritual awakening.
