The Ordinary is Enough


Can it be that simple?

That the ordinary is enough?

That to say the ordinary is exquisite is to detract from the perfection. For the label sticks to it, obscuring the truth. And where there is a label, there is somewhere where there is not.

And that somewhere would be less than. So truly, there are no adjectives required as I realise that the ordinary just IS.

It’s really very funny! I laugh and delight in the simplicity of this, shaking my head in wonder, laughing at the big joke that we create complexities over complexities in a vain effort to improve that which cannot be improved. Nothing can be improved; it’s just not possible to improve perfection just as it’s not possible to extend eternity or look beyond infinity.

How funny!

    The ordinary is enough and perfection cannot be improved upon. That said creation (and we are part of creation) is still evolving. The ordinary is perfect for today, just as tomorrow’s ordinary will be perfect for tomorrow. The trick is not to worry about the evolution; recognise we are not in charge and sit back and enjoy the ride!

      Thanks John. No trick required. The ordinary, and tricklessness is enough… This how I see it. And it’s unchanging even if today appears different to yesterday.
