Looking at the motives behind not wanting to do inquiry

 

Thoughts that stop me from doing TW:

I am too tired to do TW. I am not in the right frame of mind to do TW.

It’s too uncomfortable to face the thought now. I can do it later.

And the motives behind these:

(1) I am too tired to do TW. I am not in the right frame of mind to do TW.

Motive: I want to do TW perfectly. I need to get the most out of it.

Belief behind this motive: I won’t get a second chance.

(2) It’s too uncomfortable to face the belief right now. I can do it later.

Motive: I want to feel good. I want to feel good more than find truth.

Beliefs behind this motive: It’s better for me to feel good than find truth. Escape is comfortable. Inquiry is uncomfortable.
