Being repetitive can be energy consuming; as if the incoming fresh energy is mired in a stagnant, but the forceful vortex of chaos over a single idea. Yet repetition is ubiquitous!
There is a propensity to memorise everything we come across- our thoughts, actions and the prevailing solutions that we absorb from the pressures of surrounding society. Learning too is instilled with repetitiveness; the memorisation is also a commitment towards the most suitable knowledge that has been established during that age.
It is perceived, if we repeat, we are less likely to falter and move away from the course of that narrative. The consequences of this mainstream behavioural pattern do not allow one to move away or extricate from an erroneous situation when the knowledge/information does not have any relevance in an evolving situation at a later moment in life.
Yes, practice is necessary and even rigorously followed in many skills that require precision and there is very little scope for error. Practising and honing the abilities should not become a repetitive and mundane activity. There is still, I think, a scope to improvise every day; to make practice a more vibrant effort.
It depends on the mentor and the mentee. Here, it is important to note, that healthy communication must take place between the two to bridge the gap between practice and repetitiveness. Inadvertently, we blur the line between practice and repetition!
When it involves thoughts and the freedom of the mind to come up with progressive ideas, the act of repetitive thinking within the failed premises can be detrimental for the present, as well as the future. The mundane mind is almost gripped by repetitive thoughts. We rarely analyse the side-effects of repeating and the predicament we are getting into.
It could well be the case that a new opportunity or situation may seem to be a repetition as we analyse repetitive perceptions. Concrete ideologies that have imprinted their doctrines emphatically! The possibilities of making similar mistakes increases as one fails to deconstruct the fresh challenges with new solutions.
As a child, learning is a complex process, but that’s because understanding the child’s psychology comes with interesting challenges. They absorb so much from life; in fact, they acquire a lot more information compared to an adult because they observe keenly (their surroundings, behaviour, languages, discussed topics, and actions/reactions).
Repetitions do not ensure reinforcement! To strengthen a mind, it has to think, ‘adopt and adapt’ to the frequent changes and challenges. Precision comes from assessing and reacting with the quick reflexes of the mind. The mind is an eternal possibility and not a mere organ!
Being associated with a repetitively occurring path can surprisingly trigger a delusional comparison about the sameness and unending course of redundant theories carefully archived by the repetitive labels put on them. One has to learn, unlearn, and acquire new knowledge!
