“I’m fifty years old going on sixteen: What am I going to do with my life? I’m bored to death of everything I am, the way I look, my friends, my job, and more than anything of experiencing the same feelings of emptiness that surge through my body every day of my boring life!”
Does this sound familiar?
Every once in a while, I have about three days in a row, sometimes, even a week or two will go by with this feeling of complacency. I can’t get motivated to do anything, yet I surge forward with the day-to-day mundanity of it all.
I have a friend I call when I reach a tipping point like this. He always seems to be in the same place as I. We encourage each other. It’s nice to know someone else feels as I do, sometimes. Yesterday, I heard Mercury was in retrograde! What the hell? Is it always in retrograde? Why is it making me feel like I’m a piece of crap? Why should Mercury, or the moon, or a cloudy day have anything to do with my feelings?
I Googled the term Mercury in Retrogade for any scientific proof that such an occurrence actually could make a difference to anyone’s attitude. In the science world, of course, no one believes Mercury’s retrograde has anything to do with psychology. Of course, I’m not sure that scientist believe the psychology is pertinent.
In the spiritual world, almost everyone believes that the moon, the atmosphere, cloudy days, and, of course, Mercury in Retrograde make a difference in their day-to-day feelings and anxiety. For me, I’m in the middle. It appears that when I’m having a bad week, a really bad one, someone will say, “Don’t fret! Mercury is just in retrograde. We’ll be out of it soon.” Alas, having a concrete reason for my insanity does make me feel better. Sometimes, I acquiesce to the idea, then. It makes sense when I’m in the moment.
I used to hear a great deal in the spiritual community about biorhythms, as well. New age thinking tends to rush to the next, new spiritual encounter. I guess, that’s why I like the term New Thought, instead of New Age. There is a difference, you know.
New Thought religions such as Unity and Centers of Spiritual Living have tried to separate themselves from the term New Age, because of the many “woo woo” thought that emerge off the beaten path of traditional spirituality, even religions like new thought that are already slightly off the path. For me, I just listen and take it all in, using what works for me and throwing away the dross.
So, what to do with this boredom? Is it possible to sit in it and feel it? Is it possible for you to ask the boredom why it has come to visit you and if it has a purpose? Is there something you’re missing in the path you have currently chosen? How will you get out of life’s way to learn this lesson?
I’m inclined to believe, I might just be on a thinking hiatus. For the next few days, or until I feel more motivated, I am going to float on a raft in the swimming pool and enjoy the Florida sun. Quite possibly, I’ll make a totem pole out of soup cans. How about you?
