Dedication…

Consistency is the recipe of change…

View of Dedicated Change...

In the midst of tap-tap-taping away on my borrowed laptop, my sister asked, “Do you blog on a consistent basis?” And I quickly answered, “Yup. Every Wednesday.” She then continued to praise this act of dedication and compared it to meditation. In the consistent doing of one specific thing, the tiny nuances and differences can be recognized and the art of change may be rejoiced.

Meditation can be quite the frightening experience as it requires you to sit still in one spot and come to terms with the stillness of the moment, the breathing of one’s body and the storm in one’s mind. When we sit through our internal experiences, what must we face and really accept into our scared, fighting conscious minds? What ugly demon will jump out at us and make us cringe? What wave of egotism will rise up to drown us in frustration and self-pity? Where can we go when we are made to stay in one place?

Being wholly dedicated to repeating a movement, action or experience gives rise to similar challenges. Regardless of how we feel or what we do or think, we are made to embrace our current way of existing and forge ahead to recreate a particular act. The experience is meant to be the same, but differences still arise. A shade of color is lighter, a thought has shifted slightly, a measure of temperature has increased. Being dedicated to repeating shows us how we’ve moved on and how we have let go of the past.
