Boredom is never a description of reality, but a description of a state of mind superimposed upon reality. Boredom is often a surrender of sensitivity, clouding our capacity to see, listen to, and touch each moment as if we have never encountered it before.
The antidote to boredom is not more sounds, sensations, and experiences, but recovering our capacity to see anew each moment. The world we think we know, the people we think know, the sights and sounds we have encountered countless times before, come alive in new ways each moment we give them our wholehearted attention.
