When we are trying to change things by being more restrictive, we may instead need to open up to a larger way of seeing. When we try to break a habit or change a behavior pattern, at first we may try to simply repress our impulses or cravings. But, eventually, we come to realize that the way to change behavior is not through simple repression but by discovering a greater meaning and purpose in our lives. The greater the sense of meaning and purpose, the less are we controlled by habits and compulsions. We simply no longer have the time or the interest for indulging in distracting pursuits— our sense of purpose is too clear and the need for direct action too immediate for us to waste precious moments with worn out habit patterns. Find your real purpose in this life and watch your habits and compulsions melt away as if they never were.
