You are not your habits

Once a habitual pattern has taken hold of our mind (anger, craving, jealousy, dullness, pride etc.), we are usually not aware of the fact. The habit just sweeps in with it’s entourage of story line, emotional charge, justification, and ignorance of other options that might be available.

Usually we take all that to be completely real rather than seeing it as partly, if not completely, our own projection.
