The thing desired during sitting meditation

For the first time this morning, I came upon a criterion for my meditation practice. The criterion allows one to say, when one has hit upon the thing desired, that this is in fact the thing desired. Since last December, I had meditated without any aim apart from the continuing to do so diurnally. Now, I seek to find, to recall, to come back to (what is wordlessly experienced as) that place of quiet calm.

To require fewer words.
