i-TFTD #166: Festival of Lights Special

Wishing you and your near ones a happy festival season.

#166-1. There are two ways of spreading light: to be the candle, or to be the mirror that reflects it.

-Edith Wharton

#166-2. A smile is the lighting system of the face, the cooling system of the head and the heating system of the heart.


#166-3. Evil is like a shadow - it has no real substance of its own, it is simply a lack of light. You cannot cause a shadow to disappear by trying to fight it, stamp on it, by railing against it, or any other form of emotional or physical resistance. In order to cause a shadow to disappear, you must shine light on it.

-Shakti Gawain

#166-4. I will love the light for it shows me the way, yet I will endure the darkness because it shows me the stars.

-Og Mandino

#166-5. If there is light in the soul, there will be beauty in the person

If there is beauty in the person, there will be harmony in the house

If there is harmony in the house, there will be order in the nation

If there is order in the nation, there will be Peace in the World.

-Chinese Proverb


Teachers and authors are like mirrors who can help the light of wisdom illuminate places that it cannot otherwise reach.

Smiling makes you and those around you feel brighter. It can also cause shadows of unsolved problems disappear.

Periods of darkness have their own value, they make us act, they also increase our appreciation and gratitude when light is restored.

Inner peace of individuals is a pre-requisite for a peaceful external environment.
