When a lamp is lit from another, there are two where there was just one!
The first one did not stop shining light. You can light a million lamps from one; yet, the first will not suffer!
Love too is like this. Share it with a million, it will still be as bright as when it was alone.
When each house in the street lights a few lamps and keeps them on the door, parapet wall, gate, porch and so on, what is the effect?
The town is filled with light, residents are happy, children dance in joy and the sky shines in the glow of earthly joy. Light spreads mingling with other sources of light! It has no boundaries, no prejudices, no favourites!
This is the lesson of light and love; share, expand, clasp, spread, give up limits of mine and thine, his and theirs, caste and creed, in one limitless flow of Love. That is the culmination of all spiritual sadhana!
