There is something really special about a candle flame.
It feels alive. It actually glows.
I like to eat dinner with a candle. There’s a moodiness that just seems so right, like we’re in a higher presence.
I tried an interesting meditation practice. I stare at a candle as long as possible without blinking, and then close my eyes. I was surprised to see the yellow flame, with my eyes closed, turn into a deep purple box. It was so clear. It was amazing.
