Tender and Bored
When you practice meditation, you are experiencing yourself as a thoroughly human being. This is how human beings should feel. We are nothing but human beings, pure human beings, who possess tenderness in our hearts. At the same time, we feel totally bored: tender and bored. You are a real person, a soft person, but also a bored person, who doesn't need neurotic problems to entertain or justify him- or herself.
