There's a blaze of light in every word
It doesn't matter which you heard
The holy or the broken

I once heard Rev. Kathianne Lewis of Seattle's Center for Spiritual Living say that when she needs to connect to God, she prays three simple words: come holy spirit. In that instant I knew I had to create a candle by this name. These three words can be used as a soothing and powerful mantra during a walk. (I don't, however, recommend carrying a lit candle while walking. ;))
As for the quote, well, the song Hallelujah by Leonard Cohen brings me to my knees. It was while watching the documentary Leonard Cohen I'm Your Man
, listening to this song, tears falling and awestruck, that I created this candle.
What I most love about this quote is the reminder the holy doesn't always appear wrapped in glittery white tissue. It often shows up stained and dented. But it always shows up. Always.
