22. The Master explained mindfulness and unmindfulness as they pertain to the dharma of keeping a diary: “Mindfulness means to know numinously and behave correctly in a state that is free from any sense of attachment; this is the mind that takes suitable measure while harboring no thoughts. Unmindfulness means to be deluded and behave foolishly in a state that is enticed by a sense of attachment; this is the mind that, while harboring thoughts, does not know how to take suitable measure.”
