    It is referring to aspects of meditation, stages if you like, describing a progression from conscious perception of things to letting go of that conscious perception, which eventually results in a moment of non-perception. The moment then disappears when conscious perception returns. It could describe many years of meditation practice or a single meditation, or both.
