I think maybe we live in a culture that highlights the new. That celebrates and extolles new experience and new stuff. Going on holiday to a new location, a new eating place, a new film, the new fashion, the new laptop/phone and on and on.......
We can sometimes bring this attitude to mindfulness and body work without really being awake to it.
I feel that whilst new stimuluse and new stuff have their place. Some of the deepest and most profound work is with the familiar, with the ordinary. Re connecting again and again allows us to go deeper into areas that often benefit us the most.
So when I'm craving new experiences or new stuff I try to focus into where the desire comes from. It's often from a maybe less skilful place. I'm trying to avoid uncomfortable feelings or situations.
Old well worn situations can allow us to go deeper. We don't generally look for new ways to love our parents, our partner, our children (if we have them) but we can look to find ways to love them more fully or deeper.
No conclusion just some thoughts.
