Thread: Life is Boring

  1. #1

    Life is Boring

    Before I begin I'd like to say thanks for this forum being available, and existing.

    I was down, but remembered. Life is boring. Life is unfair. But why is it boring? Why is it unfair? Because I don't want to sit here at work and stare. I want what I want.

    Why is it unfair? Because I have to do so damn much when I get home! I don't want to do anything...ironically. That's what I do at work.

    I didn't move onto step 3, which is detach or not want my wants. That day I simply accepted the truth. Life is boring because I can't do something else. Life is unfair because I can't do what I want.

    I felt better. Simply accepting the truth.

    I then remembered more Dharma and felt bad. I didn't remember this community. But when I did, I decided I should contribute this little story about me accepting the first noble truth, and it's cause the second noble truth.

    It was also a thread where it was said "say a little something," and go with the middle path. It was a pleasant push.

    Thanks for the push. Hope this finds you all well.

    Life is life ... wanting, not wanting blinds us from the beauty that is right here, right now in front of us. =)

    Yep

    If only my life were a little more fair, if only I had a bit more excitement, THEN I could find happiness. Sounds like a perfect case of the First Noble Truth to me. Not to make light of your problems 6yx. We all feel like this at times. That is partly why many of are drawn to practice in the first place.

    Very well, thanks. When I worked in an office I would always try to get out at lunchtime for 20 min or so to walk or jog. Completely changed my perspective on the afternoon.



    Kind regards. /\

    Fairness is unfair. Fairness is boring. Concepts are unfair, boring and ultimately irrelevant. Sit. Breathe in. Breathe out. Wash, rinse, repeat. And don't forget to smile.

    I wholeheartedly agree, life is just what it is. When we (meaning me, as I often feel like my life is boring also) are filled with cravings, desires for a more intersting, stimulating life, we miss what is right in front of us--children laughing, birds chirping, washing dishes, a sunset, or snow falling.

    Gassho,

    I was down

    The "I" measures up and down.

    Life is boring. Life is unfair.

    Life is life. The "I" measures boring and unfair.

    Because I don't want to sit here at work and stare. I want what I want.

    I felt better. Simply accepting the truth.

    Yes "I" feels better or worse. Life is life, neither to be accepted nor rejected, attracted or averted ... the Ultimate Acceptance!

    Now open the "Eye" and the "eyes" and see what an amazing world this is! Oh, never fully satisfying to "I" ... often boring and unfair (we can still try to fix the injustices we can) ... and sometimes downright hard. Ayeyaiyai!

    But get past the "I" then realize the "I" ... like seeing the world out of two eyes, left and right, at once and thus seeing the world clearly for the first time. Can you encounter life as both ways as one, like seeing the world out of the right eye one way and the left eye another? CLEAR BUDDHA EYE! He who only sees through one eye is blind.

    As others have said: what is this bad and good? And who is feeling it? They are just observations in the voidless void.

    Actually, there is something ineffable about the Buddha Eye view of the universe. I would not say that it is merely neutral. Nishijima Roshi used to say that one encounters something somehow Positive.

    I like to say that it is some kind of Beauty (Big "B") that somehow sweeps in and even manifests as both small human judgments of "beautiful" (small "b") or "ugly" or in between. It is a kind of Peace, that holds peace and war and all of lifes smooth and shattered broken pieces. It is a kind of "Wow Energy" to Reality that holds both the exciting and the dull. A kind of "Balanced Scale" that holds both life's justice and injustices.

    Something like that.

    It ain't just some amoral, colorless, dead neutral.

    Something like that.
