Take Time for What’s Important
When my finger hit mid-column of the word take, I knew I was on to something big. Today is Election Day, 2018. Here is the first of 117 definitions for take: v.t. – to get into one’s hands, possess, control, ect. by force or artifice: to take a bone from a snarling dog. Time and space do not permit me from expanding on the irony of this word today. I read through the half-page of probable definitions for the term, but returned to the 29th definition for guidance.
Heading to Definition 29
I am heading into definition 29 for guidance. Why? I took the day off to spend with relatives who are in town. Plans changed and they are visiting a theme park, which freed me up to help with the elections. Definition 29 of take: to convey in a means of transportation. The message for me was fairly straightforward: Take people to the polls. I noted in my journal that there were no qualifiers. The message didn’t tell me to take elders, the poor, college students, or the disenfranchised to the polls. No race or gender was indicated. And, more importantly, no political affiliation was mentioned. Simply people.
Today’s exercise requires no writing. It is simply this: Vote. And, bring others along with you. Through the simple act of generosity, you open yourself to flow. We transport the world one decent act at a time.
