What if I were a candle?
What light would I share?
If the content of my Mind and Heart was the content of a flame, and I share that flame with others; what am I sharing?
What am I passing along?
A glimpse into the content of my repetitive thoughts and reactions is sometimes shocking. Other times, it’s an inspiring place to explore. As a lifelong student of: “Please, make me a better person,” I have turned to many teachers, methods, philosophies, books, self-helps, religions, practices, fads, diets, affirmations, and healing techniques. (Did I leave anything out?)
These days I am pondering self-governance and how to preside over myself.
Given the incredible collection of thoughts, reactions, imaginations, arguments, fantasies, connections, revelations, emotions, memories, hopes, dreams, and conversations (Did I leave anything out?) within this mind, is it possible to create a better community in here? I feel it is.
I’d like to be a clear flame of kindness, joy, adaptability, steadiness, compassion, wisdom, possibility, love, fun, and acceptance (Did I leave anything out?) so that I govern myself in this way.
Perhaps if well practiced over time, when another candle comes close and a bit of fire from me is passed along; it could add inspiration and value to the flame that receives it.
