What’s in a Habit?

The repetition of an action creates a habit. The repetition of a habit creates a nature, a personality….and this is the story of the soul.

Normally we think of something and then decide if it is ok before going ahead and doing it. We have the engagement of thought, discernment and then action.

The nature of habit is that something from the past creates a thought to do something and that is followed by the action of doing it. The intellect is not allowed to discern right or wrong because of the force of the habit which drives you to do it. This reinforces that same habit and gives it even more power and control.

In the course of time the soul has created such habits that they constantly cause sorrow and pain to the self and others. The habit and nature of getting angry, jealous, irritated, tense, pressured etc.

If we wish to free ourselves of these then with determination we need to take control again. Recognise the habit and consciously stop it.

Who is in control; is it you or a habit?


Om Shanti
