Satipatthana Sutta, Third Foundation: Division Through Doubt

The mind finds endless reasons to energetically split itself in two.  "Shoulds," denials, rationalizations, resentments, and countless other states are energetic divisions, where the mind is trying to have what it wants while hiding from its assumed reality.
