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

There is a common theme in much that I do: • I love to be an active part of growing awareness, insight, inspiration and spreading a unifying knowledge. • I care for promoting health and development, creating improved harmony and unity within the individual as in their relation with their group. • I search for a unified understanding across seemingly unconnected areas of knowledge including perennial as well as scientific. • I have coined the term "holonistic knowledge" which I share in my blog: • I write, blog, debate and teach around the world • I practice complementary therapies as homeopathy and acupuncture as well as counsel and supervise individuals, partners, couples and families to find the core theme in their lives and how they can resolve and master that.
