“There are two ways of spreading light.

To be the candle… or to be the mirror that reflects it.”Β

    Reblogged this on Teacher as Transformer and commented:
    This post is a great reminder of the role we play in the life of the world and others who we share it with. It follows yesterday’s re-blog about courage. Everyone has courage and there is a runway for them. In the busyness of daily life, we lose track of the runway and need to stop, be quiet, and reorient our self in our world and with others. This will help us and the others we share life with locally and globally.


    Great Post. Inspiring too.
    A man must elevate himself by his own mind, not degrade himself. The mind is the friend of the conditioned soul, and his enemy as well. (Bhagavad-gita 6.5)


    Love them ! thank you!


    And off I got to Google Edith Wharton. πŸ™‚ Wonderful words!


    St Fracis of Assisi …


    The candle light or the mirror that reflects it is a quote that inspires me to be one or the other – or both – but to be sure the darkness is not in or around me. The key is “A mind at peace” and that only comes with God’s amazing grace. God Bless You!


      Jan, your words always ring so true! Yes, through God’s amazing grace let us all cherish peace, and continue to spread our loving light in the world. Thank you and God Bless You too my sweet friend!


    You certainly know how to reflect the light πŸ™‚


    I have heard the first quotation many times but this is the first I have heard it attributed.


    I love that Edith Wharton quotation.
