Repetition does not have to be boring

 

repetition can give beautiful structure
and an orderedness
can bring comfort

the repetition of a positive phrase, mantra,
can have the effect of stilling the mind
of de-cluttering the mind
of polishing the soul
of reflecting the world the way it is
of seeing the truth
not distorted
of feeling God’s presence
of practicing concentration

repetition of a good habit or practice
can be like steady nailing of your boat,
so when the storms come,
you will have a solid boat
you won’t sink

Unsolid Ground

 

searching for solidity
wanting to be rooted in something deep
wanting nourishment
as a young babe searches for milk
instinctively rooting
sometimes life’s storms erodes the soil of our garden
and we have to live on the edge of unsolid ground
roots dangling in the air
perhaps so we have a chance to re-examine what we were rooted in
was it the soil of eternity
were the roots deep enough
was it real
