Like A Sunrise

What would happen if all the splendor of the world took over your body and rose from it like a sunrise? 

     It would be quite amazing if everyone had to bask in your radiance (of spirit, not look), and like the sun, you were the force that sustained existence. We all harbor our own sunrises inside, which can be likened to the fire in our hearts that eventually is brought forth on the day we embrace our true brilliance. What brings that fire out will be different for everyone; the important thing, as Vincent van Gogh says, is not to miss it: "There may be a great fire in our soul, yet no one ever comes to warm himself at it, and the passers-by see only a wisp of smoke.”
    Surround yourself with people who want to kindle that fire, preferably before dawn.
"We each have a special something, our small inner flame. Find someone who cherishes that flame, nurtures it, and one day, holds it as a torch to light their own way." - Haruki Murakami
