"It is better to light one candle then curse the darkness" is a very slight on the less common "Chinese proverb" "'Don't curse the darkness - light a candle." The advice given is "if something is wrong, do something about it rather than complain."
When you meditate, light a candle. It symbolizes bringing in the light as it dispels the darkness. You can focus your attention on the flame and go deeper into your meditation. Let God's light shine on you.
There is a warning and caution on the next step to take. The swamp tells us that there may be emotional treachery. Swamps have traps and sudden hazards.
There is wisdom on testing the next step and be certain we have sound footing.
There may be stepping stones if we look for them. We also may be on ground already and looking out to the muddy water ahead of us. Ask for clarity and stay grounded.
You will get it by asking. Careful of the dangers - stay in the present at all times.
The Swamp tell us to be cautious with our steps, one may be overwhelmed with emotions today. There is a higher power in action here. Put your trust in God and go with it. There is wisdom and light as shown by the candle.
You are loved and blessed.
