This is very important .
Actually there are seven factors of Enlightenment ,listed by the Budda .
"Herein, monks ,when the Enlightenment -factor of is present in him a monk knows,"The enlightenment factor of mindfullness is in me';"
Roughly mindfull-ness is really attention ,and without this there will be no enlightenment ,also it is the first factor of the seven factors .
Regardless of whats going on in your life ,this would be really no 1 in all you do ,you may have to conceal it from folk ,but it should be present in you ,with the first factor present [attention] everyone as some sort of attention present in fits and starts ,but here we need to develop one specific type of attention [wise attention ]in contrast to unwise attention
