Candles in the dark

In the darkness there are many candles
Most are unlit
Some are spreading light
Few are blazing bright with fire

The unlit candles gravitate towards the light
Hoping they got lit
But the only way it could happen
Is to catch the fire’s spark

The blazing ones are few and far in between
And not all candle can get lit as it is
The wick must be ready first
Only then it can catch the fire

Each human being is like a candle
The soul’s purpose is to spread light
The body-mind is like the wick
When its ready, it will catch fire from a blazing soul

Each lifetime one get a chance to prepare the wick
By purification and good karma
It may take million years and thousand lifetimes
With consistent practice and non-attachment it can be done
