« In essence, habits are models of behavior you use to respond to life with minimal effort. They work a lot like a software program's “if this, then that” statements. »
Habits = kamma / karma = preconceived answers, robotic life, not freedom
« No model for handling the world is correct in all scenarios, so you must be conscious of when you use them. »
Indeed (and yes, this applies even to 'constructive' rules, precepts, etc: wholesome kamma still is kamma )!
Very decent read, even if a bit dense: « I Sat in Silence for 10 Days Straight and This is What I Learned » by Drew Estes, quackrabbit.com/articles/vipassana-experience
