The #mind is always ready to go on a trip because it is only in trips that it feels alive. #Meditation simply means sitting silently, doing nothing, not even #thinking and the mind disappears. Because you are not on any trip, the mind is no longer needed.
The #mind is a guide for great journeys. If you are going somewhere, the mind is very happy; in your going somewhere the mind can feel enhanced. But if you are not going anywhere, just sitting #silently, doing nothing, the mind feels very #sad.
It will happen almost always to meditators that when the mind feels sad, it starts creating #boredom for you; that is a strategy of the mind. The mind is saying, "Come on! Let us go somewhere, let us do something. Why are you sitting? Just sitting doing nothing brings boredom!"
It is a #trick of the #mind! Otherwise, just sitting doing nothing will bring you more freshness. That's the #experience of all the #awakened ones but not yours. Sitting silently, doing nothing, spring comes, the grass grows by itself. Nothing has to be done really.
#Life goes on by itself, life flows on by itself. You need not push the river. But in the beginning mind will create #boredom; boredom is the mind's #trick.
The #mind is saying, "Look, if you don't follow me you will feel #bored. If you don't follow me you will feel utterly #meaningless. If you don't follow me you won't have anything to enjoy. Come, come with me and I will take you to great entertainments."
The #mind is always #bribing you by entertainments: put on the #radio, put on the #TV, go to the #movie or at least to the #club, do #gossip but do something.
#Boredom is a #punishment from the mind to you if you are not doing anything. The greatest problem for the #meditator is boredom.

If you can sit absolutely unconcerned about boredom, #undisturbed by the mind, within a few months the boredom will vanish, new #fulfilment will dawn
