Be Torches...

"Truth is the torch that gleams through the fog without dispelling it." ~Claude Adrien Helvetius

A torch, a single beam of light that shines through the foggiest of times, marking the way along a path that may be difficult to see. Often in times when we are walking in the dark, we search to find that glorious beam that leads us to the place where we hope to safely arrive. The torch itself carries deep symbolism, one of hope, enlightenment...life, truth, and power. The torch, in some areas, represents the vision of education to provide enlightenment.

When coming from the dark, the torch can provide a sense of clarity, a beam of light that leads the way. Where do we want to be? What will be there when we arrive? Sometimes the torch provides us with enough light so that we can see that the path we walk is rocky, crooked, dangerous, and unkempt. It allows us to see these features so that we know that we might want to choose another way. The light can bring clarity as to what the future may hold so that we may make a choice, and educated one, as to the path to follow so that we may deliver the desired knowledge.

We all must light our own path...empower ourselves, give permission to walk along one that leads to a new, possibly better destination. We are not required to be like sheep, following the single path that is lit, but rather find our own light, spread our wings, and fly.

Given the choice, we can decide the direction to go, how we want to get there, and whether, or not, we want to be torches.
