~ Bee Bright Candles ~

Yes, I make candles. I consider it a PlaNetweaving activity of heart and spirit. I want to give you an emotional sense of the Bee Bright candle shop, which is very much an integral part of the beauty of our candles. Posted in plain view is the gentle reminder,

Work like you don't need the money, love like you've never been hurt, dance like nobody's watching

We take this wisdom to heart, supporting one another in being clear about optimum use of primary energy. This demands an on-going presence of mind and a co-creative work crew as we flow through life cycles and phases. A work environment that is not dulled down by ambivalence and half-heartedness confirms the value of paying attention at this level. The work then has the power to be restorative and grounding, the atmosphere dynamic, stimulating and altogether sustaining. This, we believe, is as much a part of a Bee Bright candle as the wax itself.

Instead of dirt and poison
we have rather chosen to fill
our hives with honey and wax;
thus furnishing mankind
with the two noblest of things,
which are sweetness and light."

Jonathan Swift 1667-1745

Last night as I was sleeping,
I dreamt, marvelous error!
that I had a beehive
here inside my heart.
And the golden bees
were making white combs
and sweet honey
from my failures.

-Antonio Machado, Times Alone

'The candle is the flame
That represents the light
That burns within
each one of us
a source of pure delight
The source of inspiration
Of power
and of passion
Of lofty aspirations
That we may quietly fashion
O sweet illumination
Whose light like liquid pours
Into all the crevices
Of long~forsaken shores
Far reaches of our being
Too long have languished there
By candlelight
We bring them in
That we may all things share S

Corrina Cop Rain' Scotland, 1990

The Pedigree of Honey
Does not concern the Bee
A Clover, any time, to him,
Is Aristocracy.

Emily Dickinson
