The Practical Work of Awakening

Page 1 2 3 4
Awakening is a science because exact techniques exist that one can use to be present. By using these techniques, it becomes clear whether one is present or not. If we are not present, then we did not make the appropriate effort. If we are present for a few moments, then we can learn to reintroduce and prolong presence.

Awakening is a skill because we must practice. No single effort ever awakened anyone, however large that single effort may have been. Each Fellowship member learns to work on himself and herself at all times and in all circumstances. And because many aspects of our life repeat themselves, we must again and again renew our efforts and oppose the habits of imagination that rise up whenever we are inattentive.
