Be With the Boredom

Wednesday 23 August, 2000

After all the talk yesterday about the nature of the mind, it seems that my mind is doing its best to convince me that my life is a mess. On top of everything else I’m bored and frustrated. This is what my mind does to me – aren’t I the lucky one?

20 minutes with Karaj and things don’t seem so bad. He told me that after all the hard work I’ve done and the progress I’ve made I am in the boredom phase. He talked about people getting bored on a 10-day meditation and the need to get through it – by not taking any action, but instead by being with the boredom.
