Cakes and candles

There is more in the world than we could ever consume. Most of us are starting to realize that on the endless wheel of accumulation, it’s actually endless.

If you see the world as only having finite resources then you’re seeing it as a cake. Fixed. If your slice is bigger than mine, it must mean I received a smaller piece.

On the other hand, when we see the world as having an infinite amount of resources (and opportunities and possibilities) than we can view it as a candle.

We can share what we have with each other by lighting the other person’s candle. By doing so, we add more light in the room.

We all benefit to more light and knowledge.

[Merry Christmas. I hope it’s a good one.]
