What do you all do to light a light in this world ?

I think one key to this is being friendly, loyal and honest in everday life.

Friendly, loyal and honest to myself and everybody else - friends, family, colleagues and strangers.
Sometimes its just simple things in life to make someone feel better or happy.

In my neighboorhood lives a very old woman, over 80 - she can`t see
good anymore. One day I caught her when she could not get in her house because she left her keys in the house. She was totally desperate - it was getting dark and cold. I helped her and finally she got in. When I see her now every time I ask her "have you got your keys?" - and that old woman is so happy everytime I ask her. She lives alone and maybe she is just happy that I think about her.

Another example is a man who works in my town. He cleans the streets. Awful job one might think. But this man is so friendly, greets everyone - "hello, how are you doing?" whistles while working, seems happy with his work and with his life.

So simple things to raise the quality of life, to "light a light".
What are your experiences?

I don't make a big stink over stuff that doesn't matter, and I try to encourage others to do the same. The less reactionary, defensive people we have running around, the more easy going and better off we are.
