A habit is the past parading through the present towards the future. It doesn’t belong there. It belongs in the past.


No habit can last if you can stay present to it long enough. The trick, if you are no longer willing to be a slave to your habit, is letting any unpleasant feelings come and go without succumbing to them. The trouble is that they may come and go many, many times before you are finally free of them for good. But that doesn’t make the prescription any less valid.
