“Take a commonplace, clean it and polish it, light it so that it produces the same effect of youth and freshness and originality and spontaneity as it did originally, and you have done a poet’s job. The rest is literature.” ~ Jean Cocteau
There is immense purity and ethereal sacredness in Now. This moment here is sacred, or as sacred as you want it to be. You see, divinity has blessed you with A creative genius. You get to be the creator of your day, to either respond to it, ignore it and just let it pass you by OR find the beauty and perfection within the ordinary. We can learn to find peace in even the most mundane tasks, it just depends on you and your thoughts. As a Man thinks (ponders or reasons) in his heart (mind), so is he.
So, as you go about your day, consider paying a little more attention to the ordinary; your spouse new outfit (or old one worn in a new way), her hairdo, your children discussing the definition of the word “disposition”, your drivers comments about the science behind Traffic Lights, the dirty pots after your son’s cooking, a wet autumn leaf on the sidewalk, the lukewarm cup of tea by your side, the children playing around your workplace, the crackling sound of the fire, the soothing voice of the wind, the crashing waves of the beach, even the texture of the sand under your feet. No need to keep searching for the sacred, for it is simply waiting to be discovered right now in the details.
Moments passes by unnoticed, not necessarily unrecognized, but simply unnoticed. Learn today (and always) to see the Extraordinary Nature of the Mundane or the Ordinary. There is Life, God, Divinity and Purpose in Everything! SEE IT!!
May your minutes, hours, days, weeks, months and years be extraordinarily ordinary.
