There it was
burning with a fever, unable to contain itself. I thought it would
engulf its surroundings and gradually burn away all it could reach.
What an exaggerated thought, as it was only a candle flame and not
capable of causing such damage unless it was allowed to. Life is
like that. You can allow yourself to be taken over, lose sight of
your direction and get totally lost in another person's ego. Do not
allow this to happen. Remember your own light, your own life, your
reason for being here. We are all individuals in our own right. Lead
your life to the best of your capabilities and do not allow another
to outgrow your fiery light or overshadow your brilliant
Shine on fiery light, shine on.
