There is an old Chinese proverb that says, “Don’t curse the darkness; light a candle.” Over time, it’s been watered down to say: “It’s better to light a candle than to curse the darkness” and in turn loosing some of its potency…
As you know, we spend a lot of time creating educational and inspirational content that exposes the unknown hazards that are in our homes and in our environment.
“Don’t curse the darkness. Light a candle.”
Old Chinese Proverb
The Risk: In doing so, we run the risk of coming across as negative or tearing other companies down. Sure, there are products available in the market place that create issues in our homes and in our environment, but we don’t believe that these products were created by companies with cruel intentions; but produced in order to create value in the market.
Our desire for this blog, is to responsibly expose some of the harmful chemicals that may be in your home and create truly sustainable value.
We do not intend to bash other well-intentioned companies because there is no life or value in doing that. Instead, we just want to shine a light for others to see.
The Truth Creates Change: At the core of our being, we believe that a light does not belong under a basket or under a bed. A light belongs on top of a lamp stand so that it can shine light to the entire room. So, if you believe that something is good and that it’s filled with light, then share it with others! Share the light that is within you so that others can see. I want to encourage you not to run around and bash darkness, rather, shine a light for others to see.
Together, we can create large-scale change by being a light to the world.
Be a light. Light a candle.
