” Persistence allows us to stand up, each time, one more time.”
Persistence, together with patience are the tunes that guide us towards the middle of the dance floor. In the center exists the magical here & wow. While savoring the moment, they remain present as bouncers at the door. They appear each time we go for a walk into the past or the future.
“No matter how many times we stumble & fall, we can always stand up one more time. “
When we start seeing each happening as a learning experience, we can transform many of our frustrations into persistence. Lessons learned through felt sense experiences tend to stick with us, without the need to remember with the mind. Persistence invites us to listen to all of our inner tunes another time around.
Persistence doesn’t mean we’re moving in the same direction all the time. It invites us to stay alert & keep the dance alive, even if that means practicing patience. More often than moving forward, it requires the basic steps of letting go.
Roots are persistent. At times they make strange turns but that doesn’t hold them from venturing further into the soil of the unknown. Persistence is being able to hold off a little longer when the mind’s plan is not working out. Slowly we’ll touch upon a deeper tune of acceptance & clarity.
What seems like persistence at times may be our resistance to letting go. Persistence is waiting on the other side. Discerning between them can only be done through dancing, turning, letting go, falling & standing up again.
For as long as we have not learned from a certain story, the story repeats itself. Mostly with different actors but the main character is always the same. Our repeating stories provide for the perfect setting to give ourselves another go on the dance floor of life.
