A constant companion on the road ahead is habit. There are times when habit is the path of least resistance, and it makes for smooth traveling. But habit can also lull a person to sleep. When a person is lulled to sleep, their natural instincts are not as well-honed as they should be or could be. Hence the term, “sleepwalking through life.”
In many of the great spiritual teachings there are constant calls to awaken. To be aware and alert to all that life has to offer. For then and only then can we appreciate what it means to be alive and to be fully engaged?
When you take your personal inventory do you feel alive? Excited? Engaged?
Habits can be constructive or destructive depending on your motivations. Sir Francis Bacon summed it up thusly, “Choose the life that is most useful, and habit will make it the most agreeable.”
Safe travels my friend….
