Recollection is Awake and Precise

Book coverOn the path of meditation, recollection means that what you have done and what you have experienced are not forgotten but remain as part of your awareness and mindfulness. There is respect and genuine appreciation for what you have received and what you are doing. Recollection means experiencing what you have done, which is your practice, and what you are, which is your state of mind. Recollection is very awake and precise. If somebody tells you that you have a chore in the kitchen at five o’clock, it is very simple: you just do it.
