It struck me whilst lighting a fire this evening, the basic principles that a fire works from, and how applicable to certain parts of life it is... that you have to start with kindling and paper... the light items that can be easily set alight. From there you cultivate that flame to create some heat, but you don't want this heat to die out, you have to keep adding, keep building, keep tending. From there you can begin to add some bigger logs, so the flame and heat continues to build. I even used a smaller log to begin with from a previous failed attempt the previous night. Is amazing how simple a thing can speak so loudly.
