The problem with our life does
not lie in the individual circumstances or occurrences of our day-to-day
existence. It’s not that they’re inherently meaningless and boring. The problem
is that we make them meaningless and boring; because we are so invested
in maintaining our own sense of self, we actually don’t relate to anything in a
direct way. Unwilling to fully live the life that is arriving in our bodies
moment by moment, we find ourselves left with no real life at all.
