The song you are now listening to (Ibeyi - River) stimulates within me the idea for "rethinking it all" at regular intervals - this enactment is ideological, spiritual and physical and can best be described as a reconciliation of the anticipated with the actual, the now.
Yes, it is a check-in with self, of sorts, but goes much deeper, lasts longer and is more deliberate than what we think of as the usual activities of "self reflection." It takes time. It takes a certain environment and it takes a willingness to sit with the incongruences that will come to the surface. The good news is that if you are able to find them through this process you are able to resolve them, no longer carrying the psychic burden that may have been weighing you down.
