Let’s talk about how to relate to Boredom from a Buddhist point of view.

Let’s talk about Boredom.

We avoid it. We entertain ourselves…to death. We fill the gaps.

But that uncomfortable “Hot Boredom,” as Buddhism calls it, is a wall of fire, a gateway, into making friends with ourselves—to relaxing into Cool Boredom, into being truly happy, present, full, open, right here, right now. That’s a good way to be.

Now is a good place to be

 

That’s it. We don’t need to say a lot. We don’t need to blah, blah, blah or fill the space. Read it twice. That gateway is waiting for you to walk through, into your life.
