"We are fascinated with maintaining familiar surroundings, familiar desires and longings, so as not to give into a spacious state of mind. We cling to our habitual patterns because confusion provides a tremendously familiar ground to sink into as well as a way of occupying ourselves. We are afraid give up this security and entertainment, afraid to step into open space, into a meditative state of mind. The prospect of an awakened state is very irritating because we are uncertain how to handle it, so we prefer to run back to our prison rather than release ourselves from it. Confusion and suffering become an occupation, often quite secure and delightful."
