“We can never obtain peace in the world if we neglect the inner world and don’t make peace with ourselves. World peace must develop out of inner peace.”
The Dalai Lama
“Peace is not a relationship of nations. It is a condition of mind brought about by a serenity of soul. Peace is not merely the absence of war. It is also a state of mind. Lasting peace can come only to peaceful people.”
Jawaharlal Nehru

Four Candles

svicky 2

Four candles quietly burned

svicky 3

There was so quiet it was possible to hear their talk…

The first one said: “I AM A “PEACE.” Unfortunately people are unable to protect me. So there is no other choice for me besides to go out.” And the flame of the candle was switched off.

The second said: “I AM THE “FAITH.” Unfortunately no one needs me. People don’t want to know anything about me, so it doesn’t make sense for me to be lit.” Once she said that light draft put off her flame.

The very sad third one said: “I AM LOVE“ and I don’t have any more strength to burn further. People don’t care for me and don’t want to understand me. They hate most of these who love theirs most close ones.” And not waiting long, even that candle’s flame died.

Suddenly a child entered the room and saw three faded candles. Being frightened called: “What are you doing! “YOU MUST BURN – I AM AFRAID OF DARKNESS!” And started to cry.

svicky 8

Being moved, forth candle said: “DON’T WORRY AND DON’T CRY! AS LONG AS I AM BURNING I CAN ALWAYS LIT THOSE THREE OTHER CANDLES. I AM “HOPE”

With tears shining in his eyes, child took a candle and lit the remaining flames.

HOPE, PEACE and LOVE!!!
