Ouspensky on Phenomenological Description

“Therefore in order to observe and study habits one must try to struggle against them.  This opens up a practical method of self-observation.  It has been said before that a man cannot change anything in himself, that he can only observe and ‘record.’  This is true.  But it is also true that a man cannot observe and ‘record’ anything if he does not try to struggle with himself, that is, with his habits. “

-Ouspensky, In Search of the Miraculous (p. 111)
