I hope each and every one of you had a wonderful Christmas. So, what did you get for Christmas? Hugs from loved ones! I recieved… a box, a rake, 3 rocks and sand. In the right perspective, it is a ……… A Zen Garden
Now we can get ready for 2012. I am projecting 2012 will be the year of enlightenment. The Chinese have 2012…as,
the year of the Dragon.
Now for today’s little story… Shine!
A small candle was being carried by a man who was climbing stairs. Along their way up to the top, the candle asked the man, “Where are we going?”
“We’re going to the top and give signals to big ships on the ocean,” the man answered.
“What? How could it be possible for me with my small light to give signals to those big ships? They will never be able to see my light”, replied the candle weakly.
“All you have to do is keep burning and leave the rest to me”, said the man.
When they arrived at the top of the lighthouse where there was a big lamp with a loop behind it. The man lit the lamp with the small candle and instantly, the place shone so brightly that the ships on the ocean could see its light.
Moral: All you have to do is shine. Sometimes our little bit of brightness is all that is needed to spark a light bright enough to help others. Remember that it only takes one candle to light a cathedral full of candles. Perhaps you are the spark that ignites a light that guides a life to safe shores. It only takes a flicker to bring on enlightenment. Our enlightenment may not seem bright to ourselves, but to others it may guide them from their darkness, so shine on.

I like this little song, It reminds me of my brother, Alan, because when he is around children he teaches them to sing this song by singing it over and over.
