WHEN DID WE STOP BELIEVING
IN THE EXQUISITENESS OF THE ORDINARY.
somewhere along the line we have been sold a philosophy
that is not only incorrect,
but damaging to our being.
somehow we were told that ordinary was bad
unacceptable and ugly.
being ordinary was not good enough
we had to be extraordinary.
and so i ask you this simple question
if ordinary is not something we want,
why would we want to have extra of something we don’t want?
The Mosaic disrupts belief systems
it questions things we have taken for granted for year.
thought processes that have hypnotised us into believing
thoughts that are NOT TRUE.
when did ordinary become bad?
what could be more ordinary than a sunrise,
or buds appearing on a tree to announce spring
night following day and day following night.
the laws of nature are exquisitely ordinary.
The mountain does not want to be the river,
nor does the forest want to be the sky.
everything in nature is content being itself.
why have we lost that contentment?
could it be in our desire to be more than we are
in our unacceptance of the ordinary,
in our longing to be superheroes
and in our inevitable inability
to be something more than we are
and we then start to believe we are not good enough.
Albert Einstein wrote, “Everybody is a genius.
But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree,
it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid.”
when will we realise
the epidemic of “Not Being Good Enough” is spreading
could it be that it’s deceitful inception began
when we stopped believing in the beauty of being ordinary,
that who we are is not enough
and we had to be extraordinary.
i get it, the sound bite is great
“you are extraordinary, don’t settle for anything less.”
but the very self help movement
that birthed in us that sound bite
is now making billions and billions of dollars off of us
by offering to “fix us”.
THE MOSAIC wants to disrupt this industry
with a celebration of the ordinary.
by questioning what others take for granted
by seeing how beautiful and sacred we are just as we are
by loving and accepting the world as it is
The Mosaic is a gentle reminder to us
that when we sit with what is
and stop wanting to make everything more than it is
there is beauty and a peace and a contentment that surfaces
and the feeling of not being good enough ends
just as darkness vanishes when we turn on the light.
YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL JUST AS YOU ARE
you were never meant to do this on your own
extraordinary things happen
when EXTRA ORDINARIES come together to make it happen.
