Boredom in paradise

There’s great learning in boredom. It gives us the opportunity to feel the spaciousness of time, to embrace the nothingness of each moment, to have gratitude for our existence.

Even the sublime can become routine. And as a great mind once said, routine used intelligently is a sign of ambition. So it is with boredom.

Boredom helps us synthesize our place in the world, to understand our lives better, to see the wholeness of things.

Give thanks for those lazy days of aimless procrastination. They’re the ingredients of greatness.
