Every time he departs from the stillness there is needed a warning awareness. This does not easily or normally come by itself but by self-training, self-observation--"mindfulness," the Buddha called it. The feeling for it has to be persistently nurtured; first brought into being, then preserved at all hours of the day and in whatever surroundings he finds himself.
