Hey guys! This blog is going to be my first re-blog on the topic of boredom. I hope you guys will like it. So, boredom is an unpleasant feeling, right? Wrong, it isn’t. Actually, it is one of the most unexplored feelings. So today, let’s learn something more about the feeling of boredom and why it is important. Let’s quickly get started in our favorite, Expeknow style!
Feeling bored is an unpleasant feeling for our modern world. We always want to be stuffed with entertainment. This totally damages our mental stability. From our childhood, we have been running from being bored. We just always want something that can give us entertainment. By doing this from decades, we have now made it very common for us. We have now made it our general feeling. This is one of the reasons why we are now addicted to things.
Think it in this way; you have been running from boredom or being without any stimulation in your whole life. What will happen if you accept it as a truth of your life? Your life is not just about external stimulation. You are not their slave, you are something greater then this. Those who don’t accept it are all around you struggling for every single thing and those who accept it are very few who don’t run after external things, they run after internal satisfaction.
Boredom is not just being bored or being uninterested in surrounding, it’s actually being without any stimulation going externally or in your mind. It is being present. Being in present hurts because we have been running from it. Don’t think so? Try to sit in an empty room without having any Tv, book, music, food, thinking about anything or dreaming. You will not be able to do that for a long time. Why? Because again, we have been running from it.
The concepts of spirituality, meditation or self actualization are based upon being in present without any distraction. Meditation can greatly change your life and this is something that is based upon the concept of being in present. What do you think all the spiritual people have in common? They all do meditation. They all don’t run after fashion or style. They all live a common life. Why? Because they know that the external world is not real.
Our reality is not this world but the time after death. The time when there won’t be any light, sound, taste, colour, voice, visualization etc. There won’t even be darkness and silence because they both belong to our physical world. Our reality is in a place where you go in a deep sleep. When you don’t dream while sleeping. When you accept this thing and enjoy being in “Present” then you get to know that everything that you have or don’t have doesn’t matter. You are not here to be a slave of the external things. You should be internally satisfied because it’s the only thing you can control. Once you are internally satisfied, you won’t even run after short term pleasures.
Boredom is not just something that is painful. Boredom is actually the way to enlightenment. It is something that we all should accept and try to feel. Try to sit alone in a room without any stimulation or thinking. Try to do this everyday. This can really help you. This can change your mind and your attraction towards unnecessary things. This can make you satisfied because when you learn to enjoy the feeling of boredom. When you accept it as a reality, you go to another level in your life.
