“Men, what exactly is the nature of Enlightenment?” he asks.
I clench my fist. I’ve heard this conversation countless times before.
The stories of men will always be the same.
I never imagined I’d create a custom candle, let alone put out and publish this book or any of my books if I’m being honest. Months ago, if you asked me about any of this, I’d consider it ludicrous.
I think for the longest time I convinced myself I wasn’t worthy of the words put to the page — that they held no weight or meaning. Now, three books later, I think I’ve realized how we all underestimate our abilities as dreamers and creators of our own realities.
We convince ourselves we aren’t good enough or strong enough or creative enough because we’re secretly afraid of our luster and shine. I think in the most becoming way we’re secretly terrified of our most earnest desires for our lives.
So, in the nature of these stories, I’d like to offer an alternative — a manifest desire formed beyond this candle’s glow.
What if we shine?
What if we write new stories and greet them at the door?
What if we dream of enlightenment?
