Light a Candle Within You



As the solstice approaches,
signaling the point at which
the light begins to return
little by little
in the northern hemisphere,
I am reminded that it is important
for each of us
to let our light shine.

You are like a candle.
Imagine you are sending light out all around you.
All your words, thoughts and actions
are going in many directions.
If you say something kind,
your kind words go in many directions,
and you yourself go with them.
We are ...transforming and continuing
in a different form at every moment.
-Thich Nhat Hanh

Our words do go out into the universe and affect others so much. You remind me of the saying that goes something like...if you light another candle from yours, it doesn't diminish your flame.
