Thought of the Week – 18th July 2022 (3)

Pain cannot be escaped, yet even greater pain lies in the effort to get away from it. You will try to escape from pain or insecurity, so long as the ‘me’ keeps itself separate from experience.

The desire to achieve (which is also the fear of failure) is what makes the mind lose its fluidity through the rigidity induced by inhibition. This then gets translated into faulty execution of all our actions and compounds our inner conflict and neurotic tension.
