Ray Grigg said, "Our everyday life should have the same single-mindedness as sitting (in meditation): To cook or fix some food, is not preparation; it is practice.... Whatever we do, it should be an expression of the same deep activity. We should appreciate what we are doing. There is no preparation for something else." We are not doing "this" in order to make "that" happen! We are doing "this" so "this" will happen. There is never anything more to it than seeing to "this" happening when, where and how it needs to happen. One thing at a time in each situation as it arises. Doing the right thing, at the right time, in the right place in the right way. And typing this while drinking coffee and listening to the fire in the fire place sizzle and pop is one thing. And getting up to get more coffee is an extension of this one thing. When the phone rings and I answer it, that is another thing. Our days consist of things happening causing other things to need to happen, and our tending all of them in the way they need to be attended and assisted all the way to tomorrow. This is not beyond us and it only asks for our attention to needs and situations arising throughout each day, one day at a time. Doing what we can as only we can do it. That is all there is to it. Wanting to has nothing to do with any of it. We do what is ours to do as only we can do it. Day after day.
