We obtain more through our light than recounting our misfortunes
January 16th 2017
Whatever your suffering and difficulties, do not complain about them to others and do not appear discouraged. On the contrary, try to light the lamps within you. Yes, the worse the situation is, the more you must make the light shine. And do you know what will happen as a result? This light will attract people from every direction, and they will say, ‘We would like to help you. What do you need?’ And soon you will not know what to do with all these services they want to offer you, simply because of your light. People believe that their misfortunes can touch the hearts of others, so they talk about and even exaggerate them in the hope of gaining help and relief. But those who are burdened with these tales have only one desire: to flee. Yes, unfortunately it is so: in these cases, it is rare that anyone listens, for only beauty, light and love attract human beings. Therefore, the worse the problem is, the more radiant and joyful you must become.
