Keep in mind that there is a karmic plan or pattern over which you have no control. Put your trust in God and hear the message of His will for you.
The candle is the symbol of wisdom. Find that wisdom today.
"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."
Candle light also creates a warm environment.
You are blessed and loved.
