Boring, repetetive, abstract

As soon as what I write or talk about start to feel a little boring, repetitive and abstract, it shows me that I am too quick to go into familiar stories. It is a nudge to look a little closer, to find what is more honest for me, what is alive in immediate experience.

And to be honest, that happens quote often when I write posts in this blog. The impulse to write about something comes from a genuine, alive and juicy experience and insight, which is then followed by going into familiar stories about it. I may refine those stories a little, take them a little further, but there is not so much juice and aliveness there. And I am missing out of an opportunity to explore it further in immediacy, into unfamiliar territoriy, and possibly surprise myself.

I get bored with it. And I am sure others do to.

It is a good thing. This is another type of feedback that I wouldn’t want to be without. It is life being kind. A gentle and persistent nudge, an open and continuing invitation to be more honest.

I see that I tend to be somewhat of a mono-maniac, exploring one or a few topics or angles over quite some time.

It helps me become more familiar with it, of course.

But there is also another layer there. I notice that it sometimes feels a little boring and repetivite, and too abstract.

As soon as it starts to feel a little boring, repetetive or abstract, it shows me that I am a little too quick to go into familiar stories about it, and it is a nudge to look a little closer, to find what is more honest for me, what is alive in immediate experience.
