The many shades of sadness…and boredom

I tried to express the many ways we can describe our meditative experiences. I’m not sure I got it across, but I did like this piece on the color spectrum of moods. I want to encourage you, as you recall your meditation (not during, which can be distracting or interfering) to see if you can describe the experience in your own words rather than the way your teacher or a book may describe the experience. Also, when we use a very general term, like boredom, to describe a mood or state of mind or a meditation, can we tease out something more specific that may be hiding behind that generic, blah word?
