This Meetup introduces an easy and memorable way to watch what we think and do and raise our level of self-awareness.

Exactly what are we supposed to be looking for?

This Meetup answers that question, in part by offering a simple guide to what to look out for — i.e., the chief sources of suffering, the inner impediments to happiness. Two of these are mental drives which for many thousands of years were essential to survival, but tend to get us modern humans into trouble — the PIG, the ever-present drive to Pursue Instant Gratification; and the APE, the drive to Avoid Painful Experience. In earlier times, these drives served our ancestors well in feeding and protecting themselves. But today they operate mainly within the mind, where they serve to feed and protect the Ego, the false mind-created identity whose constant demands lead us astray.

— Krishna Pendyala
