Tag Archives: going through the motions

Sometimes you just have to go for it!

What would you say you are GOING FOR?  What’s worthy of your full-out, no-holds-barred attention?

Don’t you agree that one of the sad signs of our times is a loss of PASSION, an emotionless going through the motions?

The term ennui describes the condition of many today, even those who profess to be followers of Jesus. I looked up the term and I found —

en·nui [ahn-wee, ahn-wee; French ahn-nwee]FirefoxScreenSnapz239

noun

a feeling of utter weariness and discontent resulting from satiety or lack of interest; boredom: The endless lecture produced an unbearable ennui.
I also had to look up the term SATIETY!  I found that it is an adjective which means satisfied, as one’s appetite or desire, to the point of boredom.
If our culture’s primary malady is boredom, what’s the cure?
Questions:
1.  What are you GOING FOR right now in your life?
2.  Do you agree with the statement: “Boredom’s only cure is curiosity.  And there is no cure for curiosity.”?
