Venue: Seattle Insight Meditation Center



Follow these steps the next time you find yourself blindly seeking refuge in pleasant experiences and/or avoiding the unpleasant situations in your life. Stop, interrupt the behavior, and bring forth a spiritual perspective by asking:

  1. Am I aware of the pain that is driving this behavior?
  2. What am I getting out of this, and is this what I want my life to be about?
  3. What am I really lacking in this moment?
  4. Can I hold this drive without judging or identifying with it?

If you are determined to follow through with this impulse, at least slow down and learn all about this behavior and what motivates it.
