The Gifts of Boredom | Reality Sandwich

In this way, and others, boredom is like enlightenment. What’s needed is not an additive, but a subtractive. Here’s the exercise: just surrender and let it happen. Drink in the boredom, taste it, come to know it, let it just wash over you in waves and waves of dullness. Let yourself get really, really bored. See what happens. Explore the sensation. Do not try not to be bored. Remember: boredom arises from the effort to stave off boredom.
