There’s no reason to be bored

Sep 16, 2019 -- Posted by : Rob


Hello everyday, ordinary, unassuming guru seeking friends,


    …………. “If you saw yourself as your mother sees you, you might be surprised.” My father would say that whenever I was putting myself down. My mom has passed, and I never got to say thank you for seeing me as perfect. Even though I’m not perfect, she always saw the best in me ….. Larry D.

    …………. Your mom was certainly an everyday guru for you, Larry, ever reminding you to focus on all that is beautiful about and expressing it daily. Thank you for sharing…..


Hi Mr. White

My wife says there is something wrong with me. We bought a gorgeous lab pup two years ago, and now that I am used to it, I don’t get as big a kick out of it as I used to. Do you find that strange?

Thank you for your opinion, Don M.

Hi Don,

I watched a newly wed couple oooh and aaaw over Niagra falls years ago. When I asked our guide if he still enjoyed the awesomeness of Niagra Falls, he said, “I’m used to it.”  Beauty is always beauty, Don. When you get used to the beauty, that is the mechanical mind ever seeking something better, something different. If you get trapped in that mindset, you will never enjoy the true beauty life is offering you.

Blessing Don, Rob


Hey folks,

What might you want to re-look at in your life? What have you gotten used to?  Getting “used to” something is a choice. When you pay attention to something intensely (anything), it gets very interesting. Everything does. If you get bored with anything, that you were once interested in … perhaps you should look in the mirror. Perhaps you’re boring?

Blessings & love to all of you, Rob

Ps There’s no reason to be bored; perhaps there are reasons to be upset or sad … but not bored.
