Is Meditation Boring?
A: In order for the experience of meditation to be endlessly fascinating and infinitely compelling, you have to be interested in 'nothing'. Day in and day out, we are constantly pre-occupied with one thing or another, always busy with 'something'. But if you want to experience profound meditation, and a depth that liberates, the objective of your attention must be nothing -- absolutely nothing whatsoever. If you are attempting to meditate, but are not actually 'interested' in nothingness, then of course, you will be bored. That's just like sitting in a darkened movie theatre, waiting for a film to start. Eventually you will experience frustration and boredom.
