I noticed during my morning meditation today that I spend a lot of time thinking about spending time with my niblings. Its one of my favorite things and we have fun, right now they like to exchange riddles, jokes and I'll play science guessing games with them, so I spend time thinking of things to share when I see them next.
Anyway, it is a habitual thought pattern quite like ones where you may spin off into self loathing or anger, except it generally makes me happy. I can sense though how like seeing and stepping outside of other thoughts leads to greater contentment and peace of mind that being able to do so with something pleasurable would actually lead closer to the Buddhist sense of happiness.
Anyone else have experience or thoughts about letting go of pleasant mental patterns?
