The lighthouse

‘The lighthouse does not wander the world looking for ships to save, it just shines its light for ships’.

That is a quote I read today or something like that. The thing is there is so much of this ‘help others’ and ‘have a purpose’ and so on. Perhaps, if we just focused on our light, being the example, then we can be a light for others. Otherwise, how can we help if we have no light ourselves?

Cannot survive the light

If we only exist to please others, our existence will be one that is unfulfilling and their’s will be needy and attention seeking, certainly unfulfilling too.

The best way we can give something to others is by being the example and share that light we have inside us all with others.

Our darkness and others cannot survive the light we have within, share it in our unique ways.
