‘Thousands of candles can be lighted from a single candle, and the life of the candle will not be shortened. Happiness never decreases by being shared.’
On the other side of this blue dot in space, family can seem a long way away at times. So it’s truly uplifting when your mother finds out where you’re staying in Melbourne and sends a mini gift in the post, all the way from Blighty. The Little Book of Spirituality.
Travelling incredibly light, this diminutive beaut won’t be making the return leg to the UK. So, to immortalise Mother’s kind gesture, here are some nuggets from the book which proclaims to offer guidance for a better life. And this printed gem won’t be disposed of and wont go to waste. In fact, leaving it in the book exchange in LaLa LiLi Cafe in Penestanan, Ubud, some seeker will likely stumble across this tiny, turquoise, wisdom edition and actually find themselves guided towards a better life. Now how perfect is that?
Mother Mary didn’t just give birth to this lanky idiot, she also guided him towards a good life, sent guidance for an even better life, and now the baton can be passed to some anonymous, coffee-swilling Ubudian. The little things. Good will to all.
