When we are born, each of us is given one, single job on this earth.
At the center of our souls we all have a tiny candle. Becoming an adult is taking over the responsibility for keeping that candle lit. Like a pilot light, it’s the source that all self-esteem, truth, and creativity ignite from.
It has a lot of names in mythology:
That little spark is powerful enough to compose a magnificent film score, produce a bland TV show, and maybe even destroy the world several times over. What you do with it is up to you (unless someone stops you, whether physically or financially).
One thing is for sure: you can drive yourself insane trying to keep someone else’s candle lit.
(And I’m not talking about helpless people who live under the oppression of a totalitarian state or have no access to food and clean water. I’m talking about people who simply don’t care. Why should you?)
In this society… unless they’re a child, the elderly, or mentally-handicapped, maybe it’s best to let the candle go out.
