Affection- the secret stimolus
What if I tell you that you can impact people’s life trajectory only with micro-energy, almost no effort from your side?
Driven by natural human emotion called ‘affection’, miracles happen on daily basis, which impact is mostly hidden from human awareness.
All you need to do is sometimes a slight change in facial muscles. It can be a smile or maybe a look in the other’s eye. It can be a voice of interest ‘how are you ?’ in the right peach. It can be ‘Hello’ or ‘nice to see you again.’
And what are the result? Well, affection is an extremely powerful feeling, and embed in it a healing formula.
what does it mean if you leaving in an environment which absorbed in affection?
It means that you are a powerful human being. Yes, there is no need for billions of dollars in your bank account to be powerful. Affection towards you makes you a meaningful influence and strong human being.
Treated as human means — being treated as declared in international human rights. Here is just a few of them which we mostly take for granted: right to liberty and security, freedom of movement, right to privacy, freedom of opinion and expression, right to health, right to education.
Treated as human means — some people will be happy with your happiness. Some will feel empathy for your struggles. Some will miss you in your absence. Some will like you. Some will admire you.
Treated as human means — some people will want to embrace you in their lives. Some will ask you to lead them.
Does all of this sound powerful to you? All of this starts with a mear affection.
Just bear in mind that a vast part of the population in the world is not experiencing this affection driven behavior for various reasons.
They are not being noticed. Transparent, like leaving in another dimension. Nobody resonates with their emotions, thoughts, and ideas. Disconnected from social networks. Like solitary confinement in the open world.
For us and especially for them demonstrating affection can be empowering, a founding event. Especially if we experienced it often enough and from arbitrary people.
This what makes life. These are the building blocks of relationships and for many accomplishments in life.
So, practice more affection towards people around you. You will never guess what potential for the impact it holds inside.
a few amazing lines from C.S. LEWIS that written about “AFFECTION,” in his book THE FOUR LOVES:
Affection is the least discriminating kind of love. Almost anyone can become an object of Affection: the ugly, the stupid, even the annoying. It ignores the barriers of age, sex, class and education.
Afection teaching us first to notice, then to endure, then to smile at, then to enjoy, and finally to appreciate, the people who “happen to be there.”
Made for us? Thank God, no. They are themselves, stranger, than you could have believed and worth far more than we guessed.
Affection does not expect too much, it turns a blind eye to faults, it comes back to life easily after quarrels. Like charity, it suffers long and is kind and forgives. Affection opens our eyes to goodness we could not have seen, or would not have appreciated without it.
