Refreshing Boredom

May 24, 2012

 Boredom is part of the discipline of meditation practice. This type of boredom is cool boredom, refreshing boredom. Boredom is necessary and you have to work with it. It is constantly very sane and solid, and very boring at the same time. But it’s refreshing boredom. The discipline then becomes part of one’s daily expression of life. Such boredom seems to be absolutely necessary. Cool boredom.

From “Selected Writings” in The Collected Works of Chogyam Trungpa, Volume Two, page 547.
