There is much to be attuned to. Living in accord with the Tao, aligned with the spirit that blows where it will, situation by situation, requires a degree of awareness/mindfulness that we are not trained to initiate, much less maintain. We cannot expect to be so attuned and aligned without regular returns to emptiness, stillness and silence. How much time in a day do you spend there? Need I say more? Without increasing the depth and frequency of our attentive silence, we are kidding ourselves about being attuned to, aligned and in accord with, anything of the spirit and the heart. This doesn't mean we have to sit zazen and chant "Om mani pad me hum." It means we have to be attentive to what stirs to life in the silence and speaks to us in our nighttime dreams. And that means we have to be quiet and receptive on a regular basis. See?
