Habits




Habits

Karmic echoes 
spread wide like arms
on a limitless ocean,
fragments of lives
lived, another time
other places,
 firmly embossed on
souls in need of
catharsis, to
remain, till
these bents
no longer
bind

    I've been thinking a great deal lately about habist, how they become so ingrained in us like deep roots taking hold so firmly they become entrenched and almost immovable. I have many of those kinds of habits...from outward daily routines to deepest thought processes. I realize that the older I get the more difficult it is to break habits, that bind me down like lead weights, making me feel almost helpless to overcome them. It has only been through very intense consistent sadhana that I can even begin to touch them. Japa mantra has a cleansing effect like nothing else, but I still struggle to make chanting a habit, because of the habit of not being consistent...It can be quite frustrating. I do understand though, that my soul is forever trying to find its way back to its Source and so I continue the uphill battle, and though it hurts, the pain constantly brings more awareness.

Jai Maa,
