Thinking about a young basketball player who is getting better and better. His style changes, and then it moulds into a fingerprint no matter how much he tries to mimic the best players.
Such a fascinating process. Even though it’s the repetition of the ideal, the outcome is uniquely different.
Let’s say for 400 years I’ll paint only cubist paintings. It would be amazing to see at the end how would I hold the brush or how would I know the canvas. Probably It’ll be hard to understand how it’s like to be. Many experts struggle to explain their experiences. But it’s easy to see they are in constant flow.
Now let’s think about other daily rituals like brushing your teeth or washing the dishes by hand. How we can make it so that we shape these experiences to what we like best! Like holding the brush at such an angle gives you the joy to clean all the stuff inside. Or brush type that you want hard/soft.
Maybe that’s the purpose of journaling and meditation in a sense of constant improvement and iteration.
