active contemplation on something in the moment such as “I am here.” or “The sky is clear.” Active contemplation is not an analysis of something or discursive thought process but rather an open, buddhic one.
which leads to or opens into a quality that one is experiencing. Nothing imputed. Your experience is a mandala of qualities.
the quality becomes the point of gentle, serene focus. It becomes your soft concentration (for as long as it does/as long as you stay gently one-pointed).
that duration is meditation and, all the while, pervasive, spacious background Awareness is coming more to the foreground.
at some point, abide as the clear, expansive wholeness.
