     I think, mostly what we do in life, we do, to get rid of boredom. We like to fill up all our time except when we are asleep, with some activity and would never l;ike to be not doing something, physical or mental. This is because of our conditioning. Idleness, mental and physical is taboo.

    However it is essential that we come to terms with boredom. Boredom if understood, not pushed away can be liberating. Boredom without guilt is probably the only way we can relax.
