Have you ever observed how conditioned we are by our lifestyles and our habits? I have observed how deeply conditioned I am by my habits and expectations. I am easily disturbed and bothered by any change of routine. I also lose my temper easily when situations and people don’t quite meet my expectations. It is embarrassing to admit that, even after having walked the Tao for quite a while now, I can easily lose my temper when things get hectic and when I feel out of my comfort zone.
