Our Extra-Ordinary Life

Wisdom does not come from studying great theories and philosophies, but from observing the ordinary. ~ Ajahn Sumedho, Now is the Knowing

Want to make your ordinary life extra-ordinary?  Look no further because you already have the answer.  Read on.

Many people study greats to be great. As the saying goes: Want to be rich, study Warren Buffet.  Want to be smart study Albert Einstein.  While there is value in studying history, much wisdom already embed in our day-to-day life.

After-all, the ordinary life is the source of inspiration that gives rise to the greats.  Be it Michelangelo’s Sistine Chapel or Einstein’s Theory on Relativity.  It’s all in there.  To uncover life’s wisdom, it’s useful to be mindful in our observations.

Take our breath for instance.  As pointed out by Ajahn Sumedho, such a natural process is beyond our conscious and often overlooked.  Each one of us has the option to be content with it and observe the wonder that sustains our life.

And from there you will find your extra-ordinary life as did by Ajahn Sumedho.
