【The Meditation Session – What to do in between meditation sessions】- Acting with vigilance - The foundations upon which you act
It says to act with vigilance, “acting” is to do things. So with what you want to do, you must first be clear. With what you should do, what is correct, you do it. With what you should not do, what is wrong, you do not do it. So this is the first discernment. The second one, it says “acting vigilantly with respect to the foundations”, with what you should do, you also have to maintain mindfulness and vigilance in doing. So it divides further below.
【This section has two parts: 】
For the things which we do,

Before we get into every subjective aspect/action, I truly feel, “ah! The character of phenomenon (法相) is so beautiful!” He tells us the details of our lives, right from the moment you open your eyes in the morning until the time you sleep, every portion, every place is explained very clearly. This is not just in words; if you have to remember so many words, ah, you cannot remember it even if you spend a lot of time on it! This is to tell you, once you recognize it, after you recognize it, you are constantly aware of it, you would know clearly, “oh, I am wrong”. At any one time, you would know clearly that this is right, and when you are right, you are meditating!
