Finding the Sacred in the Ordinary

The great lesson is that the sacred is in the ordinary, that it is to be found in one's daily life, in one's neighbors, friends, and family, in one's backyard.
--Abraham Maslow (1908-1970) American psychologist, known for his Hierarchy of Human Needs.

I was surprised to see the crocus pushing through the snow in my yard, a harbinger of spring, a symbol of hope, and sign of the sacred.
