So many people say "They never get bored" There's too much to do! Only boring people get bored.
I must have been the most boring person in the Universe. So boring that the geese and the deer and the mice wouldn't even provide entertainment. So boring, so boring.
The restlessness was excruciating. Painful! Intense suffering! Sometimes I felt like I was going crazy with restlessness and boredom.
But here is the scoop: Boredom and restlessness have been the greatest gifts of my life. There you have it.
Because of boredom, I became deeply acquainted with emptiness. In a way that would have been impossible while surrounded with people and projects and things. Boredom led into the labyrinth of the emptiness. It led so deep into the self that I became personally acquainted with Nothing.
And that Nothing has become Everything.
So, if boredom decides to come visiting you, don't push away. Invite in, tell stories, entertain. But if gets bored with you: stop. Just sit with emptiness.
Be bored. Be deeper than bored.
You might fall in love with it too.
One of the things I've learned is to be okay to be alone with myself, when there is nothing to entertain or distract me, to simply - be -!

Mahirap mabore, kung ano ano ang iniisip mo. In real life, walang vacat room ng boredom sa akin. Palagi akong busy. Pero may mga times sa online life ko na nbo-bore ako lalo na kapag may free time ako sa pag bloghop. Kapag walang blog updates yung blogmates ko, yun at pumapasok na si boredom. MInsan sign out ako agad kapag wala masyadong ginagawa online kasi minsan ibang site mapupuntahan ko. lol
