"Every action of our lives touches on some chord that will vibrate in eternity."
~ Edwin H. Chapin
A cool way to explain what a vibration is in terms of human understanding is, "A note is a vibration that our eardrums pick up and sends to the brain. The brain perceives this vibration as a sound, which we label as a note."
The article above goes on to explain that depending upon the thickness of a string and how tight the string is will determine how fast it vibrates. Faster vibrations, higher notes; slower vibrations, lower notes.
Pretty simple music theory for sure but it illustrates what comes from the vibrations of a string, which are musical notes. But vibrations result in many different ways. There are physical movements you make, gestures and even the words coming from within you.
In its worst case;
- striking another abusively time and again vibrates for a very long time.
- never smiling at your children or chiding their lives with negative words.
These types of negative vibrations have a lasting impact. I call these vibrations the screeching, unpleasant musical notes in our life.
You can also create wonderful musical notes in your life. You can create great and wonderful vibrations every day;
- holding your partner's hand softly and walking quietly together.
- words of encouragement expressed your child.
- smiling when someone enters the room.
Vibrations that create a lasting impact, these will vibrate in beautiful composition throughout your life and well on in the memories of those you have touched. Put down your fist and anger. Remove the sarcasm and criticism from your speech.
It can begin now, during the holiday season. It can begin at anytime, it simply needs to begin. Create a wondrous vibration in your life. Create wondrous music which is your life.
Stay inspired my friends.
