Slow Thought for the Day

Speed is often an instrument of denial. Leading a life of constant busyness, distraction. rushing and stimulation saves us from having to grapple with the big questions, such as: Who am I? What is real my purpose here?

In other words, speed becomes a way to avoid confronting ourselves.

No wonder boredom has become a cardinal sin in the 21st century. Because when you take away all that dashing around, the only thing left is you….

Nietzsche agreed: “He who fortifies himself completely against boredom fortifies himself against himself too.”
