Light, Part II…

It’s been said that “… to light a candle is to cast a shadow.” Ah, but must it always be so? What if the problem is not in the paucity of the flame, but in our very understanding of light? What if we could create a light such that all shadows everywhere were banished? What if, instead of a lighting a candle to drive a sliver of illumination into the darkness, we awakened a star? Which might be to say that, rather than struggling against the dark – rather than titling against windmills – what if we, ourselves, are the sun we strive to ignite? Do you find it difficult to think of an all-consuming energy emanating from your body; like a star, like a beacon for all the world to see? All you need do is use your imagination in ways society would perhaps frown upon. But then, society disapproves of anything it cannot label, or monetize. How can you monetize that which you do not understand? Advertisements
