Why does mind become bored?
Because we are looking in the wrong direction—we’re looking at where mind is pointing, rather than at the source of the pointing itself.
Perhaps we have not yet recognized that we could step back from mind and observe it in this way.
Yet, that is what the instruction “watch the mind” is directing us to do: watch the mind, take note of its tricks, and track its twists and turns.
The moment language comes into contemplation, mind’s regime comes into play, and that is the point where we should pay attention.
We do not need to let this illusion-created mind be the master.
We might even ask, “Who is telling me to do this?”
