The Stupidity of the Pattern

Patterns are fierce, patterns are destructive, patterns are hard and heavily charged-up, but they’re stupid! There can be accidental defeats, but, in general, the only time a pattern can vanquish the human being is when the human being slips back into a pattern himself or herself and allows himself or herself to act in a patterned way in response.

As long as you’re being flexible yourself, there’s almost always a chance to duck [avoid] a pattern. The pattern doesn’t know what to do without a patterned response from you. Remember the stupidity of the pattern.
