our thoughts, feelings and beliefs,
our conditioning, instincts, culture, society, family and experiences.
the mind and multiple layers of conditioning.
a success story in terms of survival.
actually just (the) pacing back and forth within the prison of conditioning.
no space for discovering life’s true meaning.
master of deceit, convincing us that we are happy.
never questioning the patterns of suffering.
we live condemned to our conditioning.
repeating the same lines,
the same play.
generating anger, fear.
when the pain of living unconsciously is
greater than the fear of awakening,
the true journey begins.
Composed from a Yoga Sutra teaching by Joseph LePage
