'I'm bored' is a useless thing to say. I mean, you live in a great, big, vast world that you've seen none percent of. Even the inside of your own mind is endless; it goes on forever, inwardly. The fact that you're alive is amazing, so you don't get to say 'I'm bored.' ~Louis C.K
Why are so many people seemingly bored these days? Technology has created endless possibilities. You can store thousands of songs into a tiny ipod. Mobile phones are internet linked with access to any information we want. Yet it seems we are bored. The underlying cause must be deeper. There seems to be little or no connection today with anything spiritual in our lives. Spirituality connects us with something deeper and lasting. But sadly it would seem we are losing that connection. We don't know how to feed our minds and hearts with something substantial. But it's not too late to find ways and means that will bring our lives some meaning and fulfilment. Am I bored with life? Am I looking for something deeper? What could work for me in finding it? Can I make a little room for God during these weeks of Advent?
