We are Transmitters

 

As we live, we are transmitters of life.

And when we fail to transmit life, life fails to flow through us.

 

That is part of the mystery of sex, it is a flow onwards.

Sexless people transmit nothing.

 

5And if, as we work, we can transmit life into our work,

life, still more life, rushes into us to compensate, to be ready

and we ripple with life through the days.

 

Even if it is a woman making an apple dumpling, or a man a stool,

if life goes into the pudding, good is the pudding

10good is the stool,

content is the woman, with fresh life rippling in to her,

content is the man.

 

Give, and it shall be given unto you

is still the truth about life.

15But giving life is not so easy.

It doesn't mean handing it out to some mean fool, or letting the living dead eat you up.

It means kindling the life-quality where it was not,

even if it's only in the whiteness of a washed pocket-handkerchief.
