“Each of us is born with a box of matches inside us but we can’t strike them all by ourselves; just as in the experiment, we need oxygen and a candle to help. The oxygen could be the breath of the person you love and the candle could be any kind of hobby, food, caress, word or sound that engenders the explosion that lights one of your matches. For a moment we are dazzled by an intense emotion and a warmth grows within us.
Each person needs time to discover what will set off those explosions in order to live, since the combustion that occurs when one of them is ignited is what nourishes the heart and soul. That fire, in short, is food for the soul.
If you do not find out in time, what sets off these explosions then your box of matches dampens and your inner light will not be lighted. If this happens, the soul flees from the body and goes to wander among the deepest shades and shadows, trying in vain to find food to nourish it, trying in vain to attack the light and attach onto something that is false.
This is why it is important to keep your distance from people who have frigid breath. Their presence can put out the most intense fire- stay away and you can protect yourself from being extinguished.
Light your matches with ease and gentleness and the sweetness of your inner child, around those who enjoy your light and you will see a brilliant tunnel, revealing the path we forgot the moment we were born and summoning is to regain the divine origin we had lost. The soul ever longs to return to the place from which it came.”- Like water for chocolate.
Love, light, playfulness, kindness of the heart and compassion over powers the illusion of the ego.
I choose to continue practicing being of love and in the light, regardless of judgement. I’d rather be a gentle and compassionate soul than someone who is embittered and angry about life. I could very easily forget my imperfects yet judge another for theirs- that’s hypocrital and very easy to do. To see with grace and acceptance is the real work, I realize we’re all suffering and we all have a story to tell. I choose to journey through the shadow parts of myself, learn from it, heal from it and transform it into light rather than let it fester.
The more someone is angry, it inspires me to be joyful
The more someone judges me, the more compassion and Kindness I show
The more someone attemps to hurt me, the more love & forgivness I offer
The more someone knocks me down, the more I practice raising others up.
I light my matches every day, they burn away the darkness, I’m not afraid of the dark because I’ve travelled there, and still do so now I practice being of love and in the light. The world needs more light workers, not dark workers. Light your matches and burn brightly, know your joy and bring joy to others too, be the beautiful change you wish to see. Mama earth needs more gentlness and softness, more playfulness and lightness of being.
