“Where there is darkness, let there be light.”
This life shows us the darkness of a sorrow we could not conceive of… and yet the sun rises again full of life and promise as if to mock us.
Yet day by day, this gift of light reminds us to live, to breathe and to feel its warmth on our face. It is life which dries our tears, the deep soul message that we are here to move, and love and grow.
A candle is symbolic of this light, it is a passage between this world and the next to meditate upon, to open ourselves to warmth and colour, to gently help us heal from the sadness and darkness, and finally smile at the sun once more.
There is always something to challenge us, to push us beyond our limits and give us a choice. Do I stay where I am, sad and struggling? Or do I move forward, guided by a positive energy within myself, and inspired by the help which is available for me? Make this special candle a ritual for meditating on that which is good and positive in your life. Allow the simple golden flame to still your mind; listen to peaceful music and allow this sanctuary you have created to permeate your life.
