Letting Go with Guy Finley

candles and flamesThere is nothing greater in this life — to do with one’s life — than to make an offering of it. In some ways, some days, this kind of sacrifice may feel as nothing, and to no end; but even that feeling must be given up, offered to the small flame of understanding that we are here, on earth, for a given purpose that we cannot know until and as we fulfill it… much as the wick of a candle experiences the flame that fulfills its purpose. A great mystery, no doubt, but in even the slightest glimpse of such a possibility can be felt the promise of life everlasting.
