“Long hair minimizes the need for barbers; socks can be done without; one leather jacket solves the coat problem for many years.” ~ Albert Einstein

Most of us have difficulty being authentic…however there’s something really special about it. Not to be put on display, not a need to prove anything, not to be thought of as being ‘somebody’ special. Just to be natural, without pretense or defense; offers us a profound relief.

We can’t control, dominate, manipulate or influence a person who does not care either way. One who lives simply by their spontaneous awareness based on gut feelings transcends social roles . Those who care not what others say or think of them or their actions, or what will or will not be done to them possess a quality of authenticity.

They do not engage their time or energy in any endeavor that does not feel natural and convenient. They accept that life is a series of unexpected events that are patterned and joined together to create ever-changing experiences. Ambition makes no sense to them, nor can power arouse any emotion. Money can’t disturb their consciousness for they already realize they possess everything they need.

It requires courage to accept the pleasures of ones own state of existence, which is ‘ordinary’ pleasure. Not seeking validation or approval, they do only those things that matter to them for no other reason except they want to. And cease to worry about being reasonable, logical and most of all being accepted..

They speak whatever words come to them without filtering, eliminating pretense and enjoy the extraordinary experience of being human; after all it’s what we’re here on Earth to do.

  1. The Freedom to be ordinary is extraordinary ~Sid

  2. For those who wish to be unordinary…..Acting ordinary in spite of feelings of wishing to be unordinary from thoughts under pressure to be unordinary from a world who craves to be unordinary becomes extra-unordinary in its self! So you can be extra-unordinary when being just your ordinary true self.
