Boredom never occurs to the mind that is without a spurious, central regulator that is always dependent upon experience. If the mind is its own energy it does not always have to depend upon outside patterns of energy to function joyfully. So many depend on outside influences, outside patterns and forms. Often they internalize these patterns and forms and merely look with the accumulated remembrances of these. So many depend on internal influences, internal patterns and forms. However, a mind that often looks without merely accumulating, without merely storing patterns and attributes… may perceive freshly and joyfully without the dead and dusty past. When the mind is fresh it renews itself from moment to moment, beyond mere accumulation and storing. Without being dependent upon experiences at all times, it may enjoy experiences, but it often goes beyond them. Then boredom rarely or never sets in. If there is no false center to be entertained, then the mind is free of a learned center that was accumulated from others; such a mind may also be free of many other types of accumulated patterns, forms, and images (oftentimes). For instance, when perception of a creature takes place, it need not merely label it and look at it with a sense of separation. Or if it does label it, there is a “going beyond the label,” and the animal is seen without merely pigeonholing it, categorizing it, and looking at it from a separative stance. Such a mind is free to be fresh and uncontaminated, without the stale past and stored symbols. Boredom is not freedom.
