We have a horrible relationship with habits.
We struggle, we buy videos, we join clubs, we set our alarm clocks, we buy different foods. We have New Year Resolutions, we buy gym memberships, we buy pants in smaller sizes. We spend huge amounts of time, money and energy focusing on removing bad habits and creating good ones.
“I do not understand what I do. For what I want to do I do not do, but what I hate, I do.” –Apostle Paul, in the Book of Romans
In my practice of presence, I’ve found an amazing method that’s freed me from the vicious “habit cycle” of doing what I don’t want to do, and not doing what I do want to do.
