People are like radio tuners --- they pick out and listen to one wavelength and ignore the rest



   Out of a whole band of wavelengths being broadcast a radio 
   tuner picks out and listens to one particular wavelength and 
   ignores all the rest.  People are like radio tuners --- they 
   pick out and listen to what they like, what appeals to them and 
   goes along with their outlooks and philosophies on life, and 
   ignore all the rest.  Some people are on the wavelength of 
   Honesty and Goodness and they pick out what is Honest, Good and 
   Wholesome from all the many and diverse attitudes and ideas 
   impinging upon them in this complicated modern age;  pick out 
   that, listen to it, and ignore all the rest.  Other people are 
   on the wavelength of Dishonesty and Badness and they pick out 
   what is Dishonest, Bad, Lewd and Obscene and listen to that and 
   ignore the rest.  People are ruled by different spirits and 
   they pick out and listen to that which pleases the spirit that 
   is ruling them.  Some people are ruled by spirits that love 
   Honesty and Goodness.  Other people are ruled by spirits that 
   love Dishonesty and Badness.  Each picks out and listens to 
   those things which please his ruling spirit. 

   We live in an age of great diversity.  Floating around in the 
   air is every possible value, attitude, idea, philosophy, mood, 
   spirit and atmosphere, all in an infinitude of shades and 
   degrees, and they all impinge upon us all.  What we pick up, 
   respond to, and dance to, depends on the spirit that is ruling 
   us.
