Every Friday we light candles.
We light them for ourselves and for everyone.
for an old buddy of mine:
"A human being is like a television set with a million channels.
If we turn the Buddha on, we are the Buddha.
If we turn on sorrow, we are sorrow. I
f we turn a smile on, we really are the smile.
We cannot let just one channel dominate us."
--Thich Nhat Hanh
