You don’t need an accountability partner, you need a pattern interrupt.
You don’t need a guru, you need a pattern interrupt.
You don’t need a yoga class/massage/whatever, you need a pattern interrupt.
All of these things can help you to create that pattern interrupt, but we might as well see it as it really is.
Its important to know that the pattern doesn’t even seem like a pattern, it just seems real. So orchestrating the pattern interrupt can sometimes take an enormous amount of power and energy and help and “an act of G-d”.
And yet at the same time it can also be super simple and playful, or heartbreaking, or funny, or tricky. Whatever is needed is needed. It’s very much worth it. This is what gets you your life back.
