Candle or Candlelight

In the right light, at the right time, everything is extraordinary.
- Aaron Rose

People who hold candlelight vigils for loved ones know the significant difference between a candle and candlelight.  A person’s candle can burn out long before their candlelight will ever be lost in the hearts and minds of those they’ve touched. The glow of candlelight only then shines brighter and grows stronger with each passing moment that the brightness is shared to the benefit of all. Candlelight is a powerful form of energy that enters the earth’s atmosphere from its source, the candle.  Once this energy is released, it spreads all over the planet being absorbed in one form and emitted in another, but never lost.

On the other hand, every candle is limited by the density of wax encasing the wick and sooner or later it must burn out.  Many individuals, without thinking, play games with their lives and align their love and future happiness with the fickle antics of a candle, unwilling to share the light from this candle with others because their deeply ingrained mindset is crippled by the thought that sooner or later the candle will burn to nothing. 

A candle is a finite object that knows that as soon as the first flame ignites its wick, it is just a matter of time before the circle of its life is completed.  If we think and behave like candles then our first instinct is to cower and conserve, saving ourselves for fear that we would not be prepared for any rainy day emergencies.  This conservation is manifested as an incredibly selfish attitude towards everyone and everything around us.  This stinginess works against us because it acts as a fuel, combining with the flame and quickening the burning process that causes us to complete the burning cycle even faster.

True strength within our being comes with a deep spiritual understanding that we are the candlelight that will be manifested by the candle as soon as conception lights the wick.  Candlelight is limitless, the more you share, the stronger it grows.   In whatever you do, learning to become the candlelight ensures that you and everything around you will become supernaturally extraordinary.

You become the candlelight whose bright and powerful beams radiate its supercharged light through the darkness.  Nothing in life is entirely trustworthy but as your candlelight contribution increases by growth, you will begin to trust yourself knowing that you are growing stronger in all aspects of your existence and you are on the road to a truly exemplary life.  

Find the right light, now is the right time to believe that life is already extraordinary!
