Dark Silence – It was grand

No power,
No radio,
No phone,
No television,
No internet,
No computer,
Candle flickering,
Sitting in the dark.
All is quiet.
It was grand!

 “Why are you so wary of thought?” said the philosopher. “Thought is the one tool we have for organizing the world.” 
“True. But thought can organize the world so well that you are no longer able to see it.” 
To his disciples he later said, “A thought is a screen, not a mirror; that is why you live in a thought envelope, untouched by Reality.” ~~ Anthony de Mello, S.J. 
 MORSEL: We understand why children are afraid of darkness, but why are men afraid of light? ~~ Plato

It is better to light just one little candle,

Than to stumble in the dark!
Better far that you light just one little candle,
All you need’s a tiny spark!
 
If we’d all say a prayer that the world would be free,
The wonderful dawn of a new day we’ll see!
And, if everyone lit just one little candle,
What a bright world this would be!
 
Let’s all light one little candle,
Why stumble on in the dark?
When the day is dark an’ dreary,
And your way is hard to find,
Don’t let your heart be weary,
Just keep this thought in mind!
 
It is better to light just one little candle,
Than to stumble in the dark!
Better far that you light just one little candle,
All you need’s a tiny spark!
 
If we’d all say a prayer that the world would be free,
The wonderful dawn of a new day we’ll see!
And, if everyone lit just one little candle,
What a bright world this would be!
 
What a bright world 
This would be!
 
“We cannot be together in heaven unless we have begun to live so in this world.”  St. Jean Vianney
