The magic of repetition – by Andreas N. Bjørndal

You can listen to an audio version of this article, look further down.
Indigenous music sometimes seem simple in its structure with its on-going repeating themes. Despite that it has a power to pull you into a deeper state of mind. Some people need to rock themselves or we rock the baby in repeated rhythm to rest or fall asleep. The ability of repetition to take you both deeper and higher has been under estimated.

If there is a text you do not understand or a topic, you can read it again and again and it will slowly reveal itself to you.
If you read a poem many times, you could discover depths you missed at first.
Listening to a piece of music again and again can also expand your perception.

Any athlete or musician can tell you how important repetition is to achieve something new.

Heraclitus famous saying “No man ever steps in the same river twice” is a good way to understand that repeating is not just repetition but also a change into a new level.

From a perspective of holons, repeating takes you to the higher holon and increases your holonity, or alignment with a higher holon.

Do not be afraid to repeat and repeat until you reach a deeper state.

About author

This article was written by Andreas Bjørndal

Even if my work is in different fields and expressions there is a common core theme to most of my activities. I love to be an active part of growing awareness, insight, inspiration and spreading a unifying knowledge. I care for stimulating health and development, creating improved harmony and unity within the individual as in their relation with the group. Lecturing, writing articles, debating, teaching around the world has been a big part of my life. To day I also communicate through my blog The way we humans communicate “meaning” is so different and still so similar. The study of the old cultures, their medicine and understanding of life compared with the modern scientific approach has lead me to a unified understanding across seemingly unconnected areas of knowledge. Since 2008 I have explored new ways of knowledge; holonistic knowledge, which I share in my blog: I have lectured about a unified approach to complementary medicine, principles of healing, typology, the cosmology of the old cultures, Egyptology, kabbalah and much more. I love to work with people, in group-dynamics to be part of an evolving dynamic process and surrender to a higher intention. I counsel and supervise individuals, partners, couples and families to find the core theme in their lives and how they can resolve and master that. We all have a core theme in our lives and all challenges we encounter is trying to tell us what it is, help is master it and become a better version of ourselves.
