“It is better to light candles than to curse the darkness.
It is better to plant seeds than to accuse the earth.
The world needs all of our power and love and energy,
and each of us has something that we can give.
The trick is to find it and use it, to find it and give it away.
So there will always be more.
We can be lights for each other, and through each other’s illumination we will see the way.
Each of us is a seed, a silent promise,
and it is always spring.” ~Merle Shain
We live in a world that is drunk on the need for gaining power against all odds. If that means, compromising on our own morals and losing all self-respect in doing so…so be it! Right?!?!
If any of our decisions and actions are of personal gain, with the ‘no matter what’ attitude attached to it, its not just morally wrong, but psychological and emotional suicide.
We blame the world, we blame the government, we blame the officials….we literally blame everyone and everything for our problems. But, have we ever thought of looking within? Have we ever thought of how we can be a positive light in this world?
How to BE the Candle that Lights the World
Yes, there is darkness, there is corruption, there is a whole lot of wrong around us…and I agree to that. But, there is a lot of light, a lot of love and a lot of compassion within us, should we choose to live authentically.
We can be the light not only for ourself but for all those around us. If we each choose to be the light and live a loving, caring and compassionate existence, our light will most definitely eradicate all darkness.
The one and only way to Be a Candle of light is to LOVE. Love with all your heart, all your soul and with every cell that exists in you. Rather than pull each other down on the road to power and success let’s hold each others hands and get there together. Start with loving others and continue with loving yourself, loving your life…however it may be. Cause its YOUR life…..just your life and only YOU can add happiness to it by being the light.
“And still, after all this time, the Sun has never said to the Earth, ’You owe me.’ Look what happens with love like that.
It lights up the sky.” ~ Rumi
Lets all BE the candle and light up the world. Our world needs LOVE to eradicate the darkness.
Your Positive Prompt today: Think about all the times you were angry at the world(and all things in it)…and think about how you could’ve been the loving light instead of being angry. Be conscious of that anger, that frustration that you hold inside and channel it positively to do good. Think about what you are capable of if you actually become the candle that lights the world. The possibilities are endless!!
May you be Positively Inspired Everyday!
