The rule of the Dhamma

There must be more self control if we are to follow the method of practice. That is to say, we should not lose mindfulness in any of our activities, remaining mindful when eating, sitting, lying down, thinking and so on. If we lose mindfulness, this is because we lack or forsake personal guidelines. We must have rules for ourselves. We must control ourselves and control our actions in order to gain more awareness and become more conscious of our movements. We must learn how to use a restraining morality in order to be more aware.

We should fix our attention on all actions. If we are stricter and are conscious of our movement at all times, our mind will be at peace and concentration and wisdom will follow easily.
