Glow sticks break before they glow? Not exactly…


“It’s OK to be a glowstick. Sometimes you have to break before you can shine.”

“A glow stick always breaks before it glows.”

It is not true that the glow stick breaks!

The contents which glow remain inside.

It’s the fragile and delicate parts on the inside which have to be shattered before the compartmentalized ingredients mix together glowingly.

Our ego-mind constructs a rigid but fragile compartment, as if we sticks can be made stronger by stiff logic, or rules, or pleasing people outside our stick.

Yet when the whole is bent far enough, that strength shatters…

And we can’t contain the radiance then.
