The Human brain loves patterns. It is said that, "The neural network of the brain is a patterning system." But to say that we are our repeated behaviors is another half-truth, for we are much more than our behaviors. Our behaviors, as individuals, create our man-made world or material world, but our spiritual world or humanity is unaffected by our behaviors as individuals, if one truly understands the minuteness of the role the individual plays in creating human essence.
Those half-truths give us a sense of efficiency, order, and consistency; and we love ourselves and others to be not fickle, but constant. Thus we set ourselves up for hardship, in wanting to be constant, or static, when we ought to be dynamic, like Mother Nature.
