Switch the autopilot on and spend the rest of our time in our repeating thought patterns. The same outcome or worse comes and so our frustration rises. Doesn’t sound very inviting, yet it is often how we spend our life.
We are not born with a single habit, so we either build them ourselves or others condition our mind with them. it gets to the stage that 95% or more of our daily life is habitual, on autopilot and we notice nothing, just one thought after another thought, the same ones as the day before.
If we catch ourselves in our habitual pattern, become conscious, we can, of course, make a note to stop that, to change it, as it does not fit with our true essence. If we do not catch ourselves, then the repeating habits carry on and on and on.
It’s our choice, repeat or change…changing requires effort, sacrifice and acceptance of who we are. We can not grow and expand as a soul if we allow the repeating habitual patterns of the mind to dominate.
