There are two ways of spreading light: to be candle or to be the mirror that reflects it.
Light is always a natural phenomenon that we have loved. It chases away darkness, and brings positive energy. Hence, “light” is often equated to “positive energy”, and the mirror and candle are the best representation of light.
Candles burn out themselves to light up others. This is a noble act, much like many of the great people on earth, such as Mother Theresa, many teachers and doctors. They light up themselves to give hope to others.
Even though the mirror cannot give light on its own, it can reflect light and images. It helps you assess yourself in the mirror, bring light to the society and illuminate your future. When holding a mirror, remember to reflect upon your life, and your path ahead would be right.
