AN OLD BACKPACK

In order to rid yourself of a hindering thought-/behaviour pattern you have to both consciously recognize it and to let go your hold of it. To become aware of it alone is not enough to overcome it because it does not resolve your identification with it. Your conscious recognition of a hindering thought-/behaviour pattern has to be followed up by non-identified observation of your own Self in order to overcome the obstacle in your Self and to let go your hold of it for good.
Metaphorically speaking: To be aware of the fact that you are carrying an old packpack on your back is not enough to be able to get rid of it. If you wish to do so you have to realize that you are only carrying it, that your existence is not dependent upon it and it is therefore no real part of you.
