Tend to your own flame

Never leave your light, to go and stand in someone else’s shadow.

Trim your lamp, add oil, protect it from the wind, the rain and the storm.

Keep your eyes on it.

Don’t get distracted by the flickers of other lights in the distance

Or other lamps waiting to be lit,

Or those burning out of control.

Keep focus on your light.

Keep walking towards it

Do not deviate, walk in circles, or spend too much time in your wilderness.

Do not say, it will be there tomorrow, I can lose focus today.

Keep focus on your light.

Keep it burning, add oil, trim your wicks, brighten your flame.

Concern yourself with your purpose, your mission, and your aim.

Let not the noisy confusion of the world distract you.

Let not the ego confuse you.

Nor the desire to be seen,

Or the need to be glorified, make you fall off your path.

Keep focus

Keep shining your light.
