Description

As we turn toward the difficult patterns of mind with investigation, we notice some are quite tenacious. These return over and over, often for years. Despite careful investigation, these patterns define and shape how we create our world. This unconscious identification keeps us from fully seeing and releasing this suffering. Turning toward the pattern with appreciation allows us to realize the unseen benefit it holds for us. This is the third and last talk in this series.

Homework

Do painful, repetitive patterns of mind serve a purpose? What would you have to give up to not have them? What must be given up often reveals the unconscious payoff and opposing belief under the pattern. Meet these with compassion and appreciation for how they have served you. Let your actions flow from this wisdom.
