Paradigm 1: There are people that understand and appreciate when the light is shining on them. They bask in its brilliance and soak it all in. They can't stand darkness and crave the light. When the light is shining on someone else they try to steal it, get depressed because they are in darkness but can see the light (and not feel it), or they want to person (who has the light shining on them) to be in darkness with them. These people are not bad people, on the contrary, they are very accomplished, educated, and full of love. They just don't understand the principle of light
Paradigm 2: There are people that understand and appreciate when the light is shining on them. They bask in its brilliance and soak it all in. They understand that this is not always the case and that they are bound to be in darkness. These people understand that there is enough light to go around. If the light is shining on someone else they are genuinely happy for that person. They can celebrate that the light is on someone else. Seeing the light shine on others doesn't take away the light shining on them. These people have bad days, they have trials, they struggle and have heartache. They just understand the principle of light.
I think people can go in and out of these two paradigms depending on what is happening in their lives. Paradigm 2 is so easy and natural for most while Paradigm 1 may not come natural at all but can be learned over time.
I think that some of the greatest moments in life come when someone can genuinely be happy for the light shining on someone else-especially if they are drenched in darkness.
The Paradigm of Light you choose deciphers the character you are building, the integrity you are showing, and the love you are giving!
