Be As a Candle
Never has our world been rendered so alive with glitter and temptation as it is today. And so it is that amidst these delights, only a few who pass through are taken by a longing for the simple and the still.
Do we even know of such a hunger? Are we simply wanderers, or would we be pilgrims? Window-shoppers or seekers? Have we the gift of sacred yearning, and are we those who truly hunger?
If we nod our heads and murmur yes, then know that it is given and charged in these days of distraction that a few must now begin the task of turning away from the ten thousand glitters. And in this turning we turn to the heart, That which is secret and shining and simple.
Be wary, then, but wise, and a witness to the changeless Truth.
O Friend, O one with yearning face, Become as a candle now, A candle in a windless place!
And you shall Blessed Be.
