Misfit is defined as something of the wrong size or shape for its purpose…

It’s reminding me of the Lego blocks with variety of elements, each categorized by its function to serve and create...

When my kids were little, we had a huge box of Lego blocks, containing different sets of models….all mixed together, in eternal turmoil of ideas and possibilities of the future projects. Most of the pieces were “square” aka easy to establish its function…except some…odd elements…They were misfits of my Lego world…put aside for later usage or tossed away to the bottom of the box...Occasionally we would use one in the innovative way…happy to solve construction dilemma…bringing   the “little guy” out of the darkness and making it useful. Many times it didn’t look that great … but it worked …sort of…

 Until one day …when accidently, we found the original blue print of the Lego project, hibernating under the bookcase…. As we’ve looked through its pages … there it was ...our mystery element…misfit…in the perfect harmony with other blocks…functioning in the way …that never crossed our mind… building something new and exciting…. The unusual one was not that unusual anymore… It has never been that way …it was only our own perception of it…bound by the lack of information… We were not aware of its purpose or functioning … so, it didn’t fit into that version of the universe….

I don’t know what came first …the feeling that you don’t fit well to the idea of the “perfect, happy and exciting model of the life” described by other people or simply refusal to accept cultural and sociological blue prints…. All I know, that it was all right to be on the outside … maybe occasionally lonely but at least true to yourself …

There are no better or worse Lego blocks…they are here to create…together…all that is different is the awareness and knowledge of its individual function…Some don’t require much information to figure out its job …but others need to search for …lost, forgotten or undiscovered instructions…

 I believe, our wrong size or shape is perfect in some “unknown” ways…the challenge is to find them … Raising the awareness is the beginning of the “wormhole “…the journey taken out of inner  necessity , burning with questions and sense of other reality… where, we are the building blocks.

The Little Prince

"People where you live," the little prince said, "grow five thousand roses in one garden... yet they don't find what they're looking for..."

"They don't find it," I answered.

"And yet what they're looking for could be found in a single rose, or a little water..."

"Of course," I answered.

And the little prince added, "But eyes are blind. You have to look with the heart."
