However old we are, we place that many candles.
We get very excited to blow out the candles, but what is being represented?
If you think about it, it is all the years that are gone that are being blown away.
And it's not just one year that's gone, it's every day—every breath—that passed by.
How many moments, how many breaths, have we saved and appreciated?
What we lose, we lose for a lifetime. Those moments will never come back.
And what we save, we save for a lifetime.
- Prem Rawat
