Patterns, Momentum ... & Beyond

     It's such a relief & joy to climb out of the swamp of self-concern, if only periodically. So refreshing to see the recurrent patterns of one's own (& to some extent others') life from a bit of an objective distance. No longer to be continuously sucked along without choice in the momentum of one's small individual life, but released from the gravitational force of the tiresome planet "me".
     Our only freedom of choice is really to see clearly the recurrent pattern, and break free of repeating automatically, slave-like, our habitual reactions to repetitive inputs - endless re-runs of "Groundhog Day".
     Personal evolution of consciousness is much like the human race learning to fly by repeatedly crashing to the ground, yet persevering - trying more & more reasonable ways of flying free of earth's gravity. We transcend our limitations, we evolve, despite repeated failures, our trajectory is well beyond our present ability to imagine ...
