Rippling Energy

We have a great deal more kindness than is ever spoken. Maugre all the selfishness that chills like east and west winds the world, the whole human family is bathed with an element of love like a fine ether. How many persons we meet in houses, whom we scarcely speak to, whom yet we honor, and who honor us! How many we see in the street, or sit with in church, whom, though silently, we warmly rejoice to be with! Read the language of these wandering eye-beams. The heart knowth.

Ralph Waldo Emerson wrote those thoughts in his 1841 essay, Friendship. Emerson used more than his five senses to write thoughts. His words have innateness about them; they’re filled with knowing, but are wrapped in the film of self-created ignorance. There is an energy within us that permeates all thoughts and we constantly project it outward so it mingles with other energy. This energy needs no verbal confirmation or effort to interact with other forms of energy it is always received and utilized in some fashion.

Everyone at some point in time experiences the warmness and the kindness that Emerson talks about, but most of us don’t think much about it. Some say its physical attraction or a kindred spirit that wakes up certain emotions when a person or a group of people just “feel right” about each other. There is a constant flow of energy from us that creates the experiences we call life and we accept some of them and ignore and discount others that are equally filled with this energy of consciousness.

Different actions are stimulated by the energy we receive from others and that can be confusing as well as interesting especially when the action doesn’t fit into the box of perceived, but limited facts we build around our persona. This energy can come from people we don’t know or even interact with physically; energy moves freely and doesn’t need effort or action to stimulate it.

The point is we can focus this energy with intentions and we often do, although we don’t realize it. We prompt individuals to act or say something that is based on beliefs we deem true. We create our own reality but there is a rippling effect created by other energy emissions. When we become aware of the power of this energy it can be directed in kindness and appreciation. We can honor and be honored by accepting the fact that as consciousness all things are connected and all energy creates actions that become experiences in some reality.
