Wisdom


Thousands of candles can be lighted from a single candle and the life of the candle will not be shortened
- Buddha


As with the Buddha's candle, your knowledge, wisdom, enthusiasm and happiness will never be decreased by sharing them with others. Quite the opposite: As you share your "light" then everyone, including yourself, will be better illuminated.


May I invite you to take a few minutes over the coming holiday period to reflect on how you have spread your light over the past year. More importantly, how are you going to pass it on even further in 2009?

This is wonderful! Not enough time is spent on this "contribution of one's life" to those around you. A great reminder for all us. Thank you!
