Rituals and longevity

Coming up to the Jubilee weekend, my thoughts are on what a wonderful achievement it is for the Queen to have reached sixty years of service. To remain focused on anything for that long is truly admirable. I know that in my own practice what is important to me is some form of repetition in daily life; whether practicing an instrument or through meditation. Things grow in depth through repetition; greater understanding comes, things change and shift and develop. The Queen, and what she represents, have both changed and remained the same; a great paradox for celebration.
