Unbearable Boredom

After listening to Yuttadhammo Bhikkhu a lot during the past few days, I’ve come to the conclusion that his style of noting practice may be more suited to cultivating clarity than the buddho repetition I have been doing. I realize too that I have failed here before stinky due to boredom: dryly following the breath or the footsteps can seem unbearably boring but I do know it is grounding. What’s more, I am at least present to my experience and don’t have that light-headed feeling I get when I’m walking and rain summering on my phone.

Yes,  there is suffering here in waddling and in unerring the myriad mundane actions of a day but that has to be seen and undid if I want to be free of it.
