Beneath the mundane blooms the beauty of everyday ordinariness. This bloom contains the essence of all life. It is allowing the flowering of this raw aliveness that gives unity to our disconnected lifestyle, a lifestyle where being ‘special’ is the ultimate goal; where being ‘lonely at the top’ means success. It advertises the acquisition of special-ness for the mere price of oneness. Perhaps this is at the ground floor of our feeling disconnected from ourselves. Authenticity, blooms from the courage to be genuinely oneself, always. One must be willing to forgo special-ness to be the gardener of ones own soul.
