Overview: Ku reminds you that although it is always wise to watch out for problems it is possible to become somewhat detached from reality by doing so. When concentrated on to the exclusion of all else there is a danger of the spirit becoming undernourished. Perception may become distorted and dangers go unnoticed. Isolation (meditative or otherwise) should always be balanced by traveling out into the community. Assessing the world both from afar and close up will give you an accurate assessment. If this advice is not followed you will only see a part of the overall picture.
