Do you see the sublime in the mundane?
In this society and culture of extraordinary achievement, it’s easy to overlook the everyday, or judge it as somehow less worthwhile.
Imagine if fireworks went off each night. Would you still appreciate the spectacle? They’d still be fireworks. Everything about their nature would remain the same, but instead of signifying a holiday, they’d become part of the everyday.
You don’t have to sacrifice a sense of wonder just because it’s become the everyday. Are the moon and stars any less spectacular just because they appear each night? Not at all, but you have to look at them to see them and you might not take the time…because they appear each night.
It’s like that moment on the sidewalk where you found yourSelf connected to all that is. Barriers of perception melted away, and you experienced your authentic nature as an essential expression of the Universe. Magical and mind-blowing? Without a doubt. It was singular as you experienced it — but really, you were just strolling along on the sidewalk.
Open to the sublime in the mundane and you’ll find yourSelf surrounded by endless inspiration.
