—You can’t serve from an empty cup.
—Fill your cup before you attend to other cups.
—There is a crack in everything.
—That’s how the light gets in.
—Yeah, but… cup… fill it?
—Shine your light.
—I know… this little light of mine. But the cup.
—I know and I need to fill it!
—… and the light gets in…
—through the crack. I know. The problem is the spilling out.
—That’s how the light…
—Oh, wait… the light gets out. Into the world.
—And gets in. So, fill your cup…
—… with light.
