The humdrum tasks, the endless repetitions of the daily round, are often much more difficult to recognize as occasions for this kind of vivid living in the moment than are the more dramatic events of our lives. We hurry through the so-called boring things in order to attend to that which we deem more important and interesting. Perhaps the final freedom will be a recognition that everything in every moment is "essential" and that nothing at all is "important."!
