Chronic boredom is primarily caused by being disengaged from our inner experiences…most social conditioning is concerned with success in the outer world…little attention or encouragement is given to the many rich experiences of imagination, curiosity, and playfulness children have within themselves…as a result we tend to grow up outer-directed and lose many of the valuable inner assets needed for a fully integrated life.

Much learning is about using the rational mind but little about the more intelligent intuitive mind…life is seen as a rational process with a self having rational expectations…unfortunately, life is not rational nor are our actions…we make every effort to control the irrational nature of life instead of learning intuitively to flow with it.

In addition we are preoccupied with the many social rewards and status…in time, we tend to become alien to the deeper enjoyment of our inner awareness leaving us quite vulnerable to feelings of boredom.
