Repeating patterns

We all have well-established habits
of thought, emotion, reaction and judgement,
and without the keen awareness of practice,
we’re just acting out these patterns.

When they arise, we’re not aware they’ve arisen.
We get lost in them,
identify with them,
act on them
— so much of our life is just acting out patterns
