Usually we are afraid of boredom and will do anything to avoid it. So we go to the refrigerator, pick up the phone, watch TV, read a novel, busy ourselves constantly in an attempt to escape our loneliness, our emptiness, our boredom. When we are without awareness, it has a great power over us and we can never be at rest.
We need not let boredom run our lives this way. What is boredom when it is experienced in itself? Have you really stopped and looked at it? Boredom comes from lack of attention. With it we also find restlessness, discouragement, and judgment. we get bored because we don't like what is happening or because we feel empty or lost. In naming it, we can acknowledge boredom and let it be a state to explore.
Routine can be efficient, even comfortable. But they can also be limiting, take control over them. Be adventurous, vary them. Expand your horizons.
