Another one to not get caught into unawareness:

" The very purpose is to control yourself, not to criticize others.
Rather we must criticize ourselves.

How much am I doing about my anger?
About my attachment, about my hatred, about my pride, my jealousy?

These are the things which we must check in daily life.
Taking your own body and mind as the laboratory, engage in some thorough going research on your own mental functioning, and examine the possibility of making some positive changes within yourself."

His Holiness The Dalai Lama.
‘View like the sky’ means that nothing is held onto in any way whatsoever. You are not stuck anywhere at all. In other words, there is no discrimination as to what to accept and what to reject; no line is drawn separating one thing from another. ‘Conduct as fine as barley flour’ means that there is good and evil, and one needs to differentiate between the two. Give up negative deeds; practice the Dharma. In your behaviour, in your conduct, it is necessary to accept and reject.” Guru Rinpoche

Mind and heart to not run into unawareness.

In our awareness, a good heart is both important and effective in daily life.
If in a group, family the members have warm heart for each other, a peaceful atmosphere will be created.
However if one of the persons feels angry, immediately the atmosphere becomes tense.
Despite good food or nice television set, you will lose peace and calm. Thus things depend more on the mind than on the matter. Matter is important and must be used properly, but in this century we must combine a good brain with a good heart.
