A Quote and a Question

“We hurry though the so-called boring things in order to attend to that which we deem more important, interesting.  Perhaps the final freedom will be a recognition that everything in every moment is ‘essential’ and that nothing at all is ‘important’.”  Helen M. Luke

What would the next hour, the next day, be like if we saw no task as important but everything as essential?

Michele has won the Do What You Can Challenge that I posted in December.  Her comment was selected by the random number generator.  Once I know what her hobbies are, I’ll send along a package with handmade cards, some goodies, and a few other bits to say, “Thank you.”  Thank you to everyone who left a comment.  It was great to see how much we can do when we all do a little.

If you’re still looking for something small to do, please read this post from the Yarn Harlot: An Unreasonable Goal. Like a sweater formed from countless stitches, one at a time, this goal will be met by countless people making a donation, one at a time.

    Your post reminded me of something I’ve been using the last few weeks.
    I’m reading Tolle’s A New Earth, and from that I culled the following:

    Am I viewing today (this minute, this afternoon, this week, etc.) as a) an obstacle; b) a means to an end; or c) an enemy.

    This helps me to stay in the NOW and to value the now as the only moment in time that I actually have.

    It totally changes my path for each day to value the present moment instead of always look to the future or past.

    Nice quote. I started a mindfullness meditation class last week. It seems several things are coalescing around being more in the present right now.
