Every morning I wake up alone in darkness.
Then in the distance I notice a spark.
The spark reminds me that I’m not alone.
The darkness is all around us. It’s easy to see.
It takes more intentional effort to find the light...but the light is there too. Always.
Even on the darkest of days and the loneliest of times the light exists.
The light is in you. Some days it’s the tiniest spark. Some days a flame.
But a flame cannot exist without a spark.
The spark- though tiny and seemingly insignificant is monumental.
Alone a spark goes unnoticed. But many sparks together cannot help but become a flame... become a force.
The light in me sees and honors the light in you. Be the light. Feel the light. Share Your Light.
“A thousand candles can be lit from a single candle and the life of the single candle will not be shortened.” -Buddha
Our light was not put in us for us to shine and to show people that we have a light. Our light was put in us to share, to share it with the world and with others. When we are gone all that’s left of us is the light that we shared with others- the impact we had on others.
Imagine a candle is burning brightly- then suddenly the wind blows it out. If it never lit any other candles then the remnants of its existence will be extinguished with its flame. But if it lit other candles then though the flame on its wick may be gone…its flame has been transferred many times over through every wick it has touched and ignited.
