Acting in habit

One of the great mysteries is habit, repetition. If I act sacredly long enough, listen to sacred music long enough, greet the tree that stands in front of my door long enough in the morning and ignore the expressions of my mind, which may only consist of finding the actions childish, the music annoying and the tree greeting quirky, then it will eventually get used to it. If he is used to it, then it has become part of his world. If it has become part of his world, he no longer fights it. Then it releases space in our consciousness and we have the possibility to experience new truth. In actions, in music, in contact. We must then be prepared for this opening and not already have made the acting, the listening, the greeting an empty, tired – already slightly hopeless – rut.

Another secret is connected with this: The patience. The patience to wait actively until the mind has become accustomed and no longer fights. It can take a long time, because it is confirmed again and again by the other side – the material habit of the many – in old habits and influenced, even put under pressure. Patience also means strength.

The habit we already have is the habit of people in materialistic consumer societies. Just turn on the television. Then everyone will know what I mean….The path is just difficult because it has to be walked under the given circumstances. And changing habits has never been easy either way.

Pain must never be allowed to guide us. Our actions grow out of the fearless knowledge of our security in the meaning, of our soulfulness and of the eternal unity of everything. We always act in love for everything and everyone. There is no inner separation. Pain alone must never guide us.
