SOAPBOX of the week: worldly wavelengths

“Life is a state of constant radiation and absorption; to exist is to radiate; to exist is to be the recipient of radiations.”     ~  William George Jordan, American editor and essayist

Think of some special one who illuminates your world with wisdom, joy, inspiration, beauty, compassion and peace.  Who do you envision? Dear old Dad?  Grandma Evelyn?  How about that favorite fifth grade teacher, hilarious next door neighbor, or person with whom you shared suffering and strife?  Distinct from you in myriad ways and yet faced with countless circumstances and crucial choices each day –just like you.  The shadows of these exceptional people have been stitched into your virtual cape, perhaps because they exemplify just how to welcome the opacity of opportunity or step into the unknown of change with admirable measures of courage, enthusiasm, and faith.  Regardless, you chose to absorb their energy and the fragrance from those metaphorical embraces still lingers in your persona.  What a gift to receive!  Moreso, what a gift to give.  Needless to say, you cannot pretend to be like these people…but you can choose to emulate them.  So, how can you mix with the other silent, unconscious, unseen influences of life for the benefit of others?  Choose wisdom, joy, inspiration, beauty, compassion and peace as a unified needle in your own moral compass and witness how your “good emissions” indeed make the world a better place to live.
