Keep your eyes open.
The same way a moving hand is a strike a deflection and a lever we can use gear that we have for many uses if our mind avoids placing a sticker on it. For example a colored nylon bag is both a signaling device, a water collecting device, a hazardous material tool (either drugs, human waste, heated C4 etcetera) an arresting tool placed overhead, a gear bag for wet clothes, a water purifying device (leave the water in the bag in the sun and let it sit and evaporate from one side to the elevated side) and so on. This is just an example but the idea is to be free and keep the mind working when you do the work. The way to reach that is to breath and keep aware of yourself. From there the road to self mastery is paved.
