Meditation on Remaining Conscious
Pause a moment and move your attention into your breath.  As you move into the awareness of this moment, become conscious of your activities during the day thus far.  Acknowledge those thoughts, words, and actions which were joined in partnership with your Divinity, and those moments when you may have lost consciousness of this partnership.  Use your imagination to change anything you may have wanted to change in your own thoughts, words, and actions today.  (Glory, p. 238)
