Getting Used To Boredom

feeling weary and impatient
because one is unoccupied
or lacks interest in one’s current activity.

‘Boredom’ is a misnomer.

Merely being unoccupied or lacking interest
does not equate with boredom.
It is just coming to rest within inner peace.

Bored? Then go deeper. Mindfulness is not interesting. If there is something that needs to be done, we just do it. There is a fleeting moment of satisfied completion, and then there is the next moment to deal with. Meditation is like that; all the while, we come to rest.

Sitting down with a cup of tea
and doing nothing is satisfying,
isn’t it?

Activities are never fulfilling. They might be exciting and distracting, but that’s all. Because of this excitement, we want more, and this is called addiction.

Boredom sets us free. The saying, “The devil makes work for idle hands”, was written by the devil 🙂 ie those who want to make money out of us.

When we actually realise our true reality,
we just rest there
– mindfully and precisely –
doing only what has to be done.
