"Who" is the "one" asking this question. : )Why am I not enlightened?
lol that reminded me of something I've written long ago... out of boredom. I thought I had deleted it -out of boredom-, but it was still 'alive' somewhere. Sorry if it makes no sense... it was a ramble after all.Some of us are fed up with having to be this or that, and it is a relief just to be...boring!
"On my 'Guru' Boredom
Boredom helps me to not get stuck.
To not become a fanatic. And therefore to not construct any prejudices.
To explore everything without attachment.
To travel without moving.
To laugh and joke about my-self, especially when I "think" I'm serious.
To remember this is only a moment.
It helps me to listen.
To go beyond the apparent boundaries of my own physicality.
It nurtures my freedom.
I'm not here.
Yes, clinging is the greatest obstacle... more than the "things/experiences" themselves, at least when there's no more learning from it; BUT to cling is an experience by itself worthy to experience at some point -good that all is impermanent by essence! lol-. For me, my own boredom was a good sign -I've learned that over the time-, even though sometimes it's labelled as "wrong", what would it be "wrong" if I felt great lol and this is hard to explain... but only shrugged at when questioned about it, lately. It means that some experiences won't be re-created again, and new experiences are impossible to become an obsession... 'cause I easily lose interest on things. I used to called it 'laziness' too. Perhaps it is a bit of both, boredom and laziness to 'engage' in most illusions.This comes with it's own special problems! These interesting qualities and experiences have to be dropped like a hot brick as soon as their use has passed: any claiming of these will create obstacles. And unless they are dropped, continuous inspiration cannot arise...that's inspiration for you!
Thanks for the post.
