Imagine a sea of humans in a vast expanse of darkness,
A lone candle burns in the hands of one,
Observing his neighbors unlit candles,
He proceeds to share the light of his candle with them.
The light grows in intensity and more shadows jump out of the darkness,
Almost threatening to snuff out the candles,
But the bearers of the light know that the shadows are visible because of the light.
Sharing the light becomes an all important task,
As more and more shadows jump out in desperate need of light,
And yet one candle will suffice to rid us of the darkness.
Every face aglow in the warm light,
Laughter and tears mingling with the soft strains of music,
Every heart bursting with love,
A love that is limitless and engulfs the entire cosmos.
Imagine a sea of dancing flames that illuminates the entire earth
Perceived as a luminous globe by creatures from afar
Love pervading every nook and cranny of space
Every black hole turned inside out to reveal brilliant light.
Our heavy bodies burdened with life
Magically turn light and we float blissfully
The very embodiment of the Divine.
