We all have thousands of opportunities every single day to help realize the 'natural order of things.'

So many seemingly trivial interactions between two people present us with a choice:

Do we pass along a little spark of love and humanity or do we pass up those opportunities and leave the world a little bit colder in the process?

A wise man once said every society is judged by how it treats it's least fortunate amongst them.

Like a plant, we cannot choose our initial location in this universe nor our initial path towards maturity. However, unlike a plant, humans have the capability to extend themselves beyond their original environment and living conditions through the enormous power of the mind through the power of learning and choice. It all starts with a willingness to tap into this enormous power within ourselves.

I recall hearing an interview on the radio the other day about how this one person said that he consciously tries to smile at people, even those who provide bad service. He said that smiling uses the same amount of energy as frowning, but smiling has the added benefit of helping him maintain a positive mood for the remainder of the day. I can easily imagine that many similar choices during the course of a given day can have exponential positive effective at the end of the day - a cascade or domino effect.
