Besieged by Boredom
I am I manufacturing my experience or is it true? This is a question I often ask myself. It is me pinching myself as a reminder that the experience that I am in in that moment is true for me. I am not talking about absolute reality because fleeting experiences wouldn’t be the appropriate pointer to it, reality is judged by that which is not fleeting. If a human being discovers within himself something that is not fleeting they would have found something real.
So where does boredom come in here? Boredom and I guess the habitual bracing for incoming anxiety ( the anxiety which does not come anymore ) are probably the two most dominant experiences I have right now that I would rather not have. The boredom comes from the periods that I am not deeply engaged in some endeavor and the bracing for anxiety comes when I do something and the narrative of that I should be doing something else or shouldn’t be doing the activity at hand at all exists in my mind. I think its an habit that was cemented when I had anxiety, I would brace for the anxiety, then the anxiety would come. Then I would be consumed by it till I slept or found a cosmetic fix to it. I would be relieved temporarily then it would attack again from another avenue.
I am getting used to being alone. I want to be comfortable being alone so that I no longer feel boredom. That a human being is fundamentally alone is a truth whose digestion is ongoing in me. Though 2 people might feel a certain way at a given time, each one of them is feeling that way on their own, it is their personal experience. I am sure there is a deeper way of dissecting this to make it easier to see how this is so — but the example above might just be the doorstep of it.
Acceptance that I am not a regular societal human being is another fact that needs to seep through me. This is not accordance of any specialty to myself it is a self observation. If I were to fit in to society I would suffer a great deal. Right now there is a part of me that struggle to remain in society but there is a part that is pulling me away to asceticism and its getting stronger with more realizations.
