Today Our Lord tells us to stay awake, be alert, for the for we do not know the hour of His coming.  Thus, Fr. Elias says we should have a spiritual insomnia, never relaxing in spiritual complacency. He relates this to the spiritual principle of living in the current moment, striving  for holiness now, grabbing the graces and inspirations that our Lord is giving us this moment and, also, living in the presence of God, always being mindful of His presence. In this way we can grow daily in holiness. Ave Maria!
