Living in the present (and restlessness)
I read an article (not fully buddhist but with buddhist slant) about why we are bored and restless: the author says it is because we cannot fully appreciate each moment. He says each moment is new (no repetition), so boredom is impossible if we live in the moment. But because we miss the present moment, we experience restlessness.
This does not convince me because what if each moment is also boring? This moment, I stare at a blank wall and that's boring ... next moment a thought about dinner comes up, that too is mundane and boring. And so on. So even if each moment is new it could still be boring, right?
Or am I missing something here?
