Wake: to remain in the present tense. The active form of this energy is “to watch.” A secondary form is the act of entering an energized state, or “to wake.” Together they draw upon a direct connection between time, space and energy. For this reason, meditative or prayer sessions that divide the night are called “watches”; they form the night-time equivalent of the robin’s watchfulness below. They sculpt the night in nightly ways, just as the robin below sculpts the day in daytime (i.e. individual) ones.
