As humans with Receptors of Mind, Heart and Soul, we are bound up in the unpredictability of chance. This means that we actually can’t avoid being inspired, nor can we avoid inspiring others. We all dream our dreams; we all reach out to, and love, each other; we can, if we are brave, be true to our real selves. We are all moved by great music, by drama on stage and off it, and by the unselfishness of ordinary people. And ordinary people do the same for us: we have each given and received Inspiration, for it is part of being human. However, by developing our capacity to receive and give it consciously, and with courage, will and awareness, we can live more fully and help each other to do the same.  This, hopefully, will ‘lead’ us to become less ordinary and more human. We have a pathway to realising more of ourselves and of others. Far from accepting ordinariness, then, we might be able to  accept Hamlet’s affirmation of the extra-ordinariness of each one of us:

What a piece of work is a man! How noble in reason, how infinite in faculty, in form and moving how express and admirable, in action how like an angel, in apprehension how like a god – the beauty of the world, the paragon of animals!
