When People Really Connect

Life is no brief candle to me. It is a sort of splendid torch which I've got hold of for the moment, and want to make it burn as brightly as possible before handing it on to future generations.
George Bernard Shaw

It is difficult to find mentors sometimes. It seems so many of us move about the earth in a zombie-state, not quite here. But some of us awake from time to time and look for others who are also awake. Those who have been awake longer; those are the mentors. How do you spot a mentor? They radiate energy, like a torch. This energy isn't visible at all times. Mentors aren't perfect humans, but at the point in time when their energy radiates and reaches another, that is a perfect moment for both persons. That is when the torch is lit.
