Use feelings of "bored and restless" to overcome a state of "not enough"
The mind exists in a state of “not enough” and so is always greedy for more. Boredom means the mind is hungry for more stimulus, more food for thought—its hunger is not being satisfied, and so you satisfy the hunger with reading, talking, TV, internet, shopping, and/or actually eating needlessly.
When you stop and choose to bring awareness to the feeling, you will find that there is space and stillness around the feeling, and as the inner space grows, the feeling of boredom begins to diminish. So even boredom can teach you who you are and who you are not. You discover that a bored person is not who you are, but it is simply a condition of the human mind that will come and go. Nothing that comes and goes is you.
