All the darkness in the world cannot extinguish the light of a single candle. ~ Saint Francis of Assisi


Town of Assisi, Italy

The poet Rumi once said “Be a lamp, or a lifeboat, or a ladder. Help someone’s soul heal. Walk out of your house like a shepherd.”


Whenever you’re feeling fear and lost in the seeming darkness of your chaotic world today, remember this: Darkness is not the absence of light—it is the denial of light. No matter how dark your world seems, the light you are is always there.

As Saint Francis says, all the world’s darkness cannot put out the light of even one candle. That one candle is you. The love and light that you are has incredible power—enough power to transform the darkness into light. Enough power to transform darkness and hatred into love and light.

You, standing alone, have that much power.

So when you perceive darkness, it is not because there is no light. It is because you are denying the existence of the light within you—the light that is you.
