Why A Blind Lady Carried A Lamp


A blind lady was walking on the streets of a dark town in the far East. On her hand, a luminous oil lamp. The town would get very dark on moonless nights like that one. Suddenly, a friend comes across the lady, and asks her:

-My lady, forgive my intrusion, but what are you doing with a lamp in your hand? If you can’t see, why is it useful to you?

-I don’t carry the lamp for me, dear, I know my way around these dark streets. I carry the light for others to find their way when they see me.

*We all have the possibility to be the light other people need. It’s not always easy, but it’s too important to not give it a go.

Rephrasing what Gandhi said: “be the light you wish to see in the world.”

Can you be the light someone needs?

Much happiness,
