Do things with full wisdom and consciousnessWhen thought, word, and deed go hand in hand, life progresses easily. We have knowledge, not consciousness. We have intelligence but no wisdom. We need thought, word, and deed that emanate from correct knowledge and clear consciousness. Or we may not reach our intended goal. If two horses pull a cart in the opposite direction, it will not get anywhere. But, if both horses pulled the cart in the same direction, they can reach the goal faster. Likewise, when our thoughts, words, and deeds are in the same direction, life progresses easier. As long as our consciousness does not wake up, we will not be able to take full advantage of the opportunities available to us. If we act without thinking, will fall into mistakes. The five elements must be necessary if anything is to be done with full consciousness. One is the wisdom of what he is doing, two is the ability to recognize virtue and non-virtue, three is a calm mind, four is complete attention, and five is the indifference to see ourselves and our work from our own point of view. When these five factors come together we can do anything best. That is what our endeavor should be for.
