Boredom The Art of Transformation
Guess what people? In life, fireworks don't always go off.
If there is one thing that some of the other non-mainstream religious practices can teach us, is that the ecstatic can often be found right on the other side of that boredom. We are so used to going at the speed of light; checking our email, catching up on Facebook every ten minutes, and tweeting our hearts out, that if we don't have flashing, lightening, and high intensity we feel like we are missing out.
It sounds crazy, I know this. But life is paradox and this is just another example of it.
So, the next time you are at a "boring ritual", I challenge you to keep at it and see what is waiting for you on the other side. It might just blow your mind.
