Practice is repetition but that doesn't mean it is monotonous. In fact if you are seeing monotony then you are not really seeing the truth. But this too takes practice. A little bit every day, formally, allows flexibility to eventually be available. New, old, in-between practitioners all wake up over and over again. Some more kindly than others. Some more deeply than others. Some more consistently than others. So what? Develop your own practice reality — that's what.
