Awareness needs to be strong; otherwise, the mind cannot be calm. You need to build up your strength all the time. Only then, the mind can be ready when you meet a difficult situation.
Practice moment to moment. If you want to grow your quality of mind, it is important to build up the momentum of awareness.
Moment to moment, try to build up your strength all the time – then only are you ready when some difficult situation arises; otherwise, it’s very difficult.
