There is coarse and refined engagement.

Coarse engagement is the repeated application of the mind to the meditation object.

Refined engagement is the mind that sticks with the meditation object after being applied.

The mind is engaged in a coarse and refined way and varying times during the sitting.

Hi Nothing,

There's some information which you might find helpful in this little book by Ajahn Amaro, abbot of Amaravati Monastery UK.

"Finding the Missing Peace - A Primer of Buddhist Meditation".
