Lightbulbs (I remember the guitar in the back of the classroom)

I believe that you reflect the thing you keep your gaze locked onto. The people who fix their eyes in the school books will live, breathe and eat their subject. They will quite obviously still have a normal life after they shut the books, but depending on where they have their focus, they will reflect it in their life outside of uni. If you keep your eyes on playing guitar, you might become the best guitarist in the world. Or at least your hometown. But your free time, your work and your sleep will be affected by your guitar playing. If you focus on alcohol, it's quite obvious that other things will slowly give way for this.
Whatever you look at, you will reflect. It's true that many spend half of their life hiding what they're doing during the other half of the time. But usually, your friends can tell. A dancer will always have the dance in her movements, even when there's no music. 
So if you keep you're gaze fixed on Jesus, your life will reflect Jesus.
If you keep your gaze fixed on darkness, your life will reflect darkness.
If you keep your gaze fixed on hatred and strife, your life will reflect hatred and strife
If you focus on yourself, your life will reflect nothing but your own ego.
If you look at the light - you will reflect light.
I'm not telling you what to look at or what I think you should reflect. I'm just saying that the reflection will depend on the source of the light. It's as simple as that.

In high school, I learned something fascinating during physics class. Human beings emit light. Atoms and biochemical reactions create light photons every now and then. And as you might remember from school, our body is made out of those atoms and our body keeps functioning only because of biochemical reactions. You're built up out of miniature lamps and it keeps your body functioning. So, even the darkest place won't be dark unless you're there, even if it's just the weakest light.

"You are the light of the world. A city on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before men, that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven."

I just find it fascinating - that's all.
