Sometimes we can get trapped in a complaining pattern, where even the most minuscule issues are judged.

I just knew it would happen. It never fails.”

Whatever you complain about, you are making into your enemy. This reinforces your mind’s perceived separation from the all-encompassing oneness of the divine. Unaware of the love that permeates the universe, we seek solace in the role of a victim—viewing ourselves as persecuted makes us feel oddly heroic. We were wronged, and complaining becomes our way of executing justice.
