To place the light under the bad

     It happens so often that we shove the light into a corner so that nobody could see it.  It’s done out of envy that someone else is smarter, more sensible, diligent and more holy.  We want to destroy, to eliminate him or her.  And place ourselves on the pedestal.
     And sometimes it happens that we are the ones who truly shine.  Let’s not fight it if people want to put us on the pedestal.  Even if it’s just for a while - so we can have our five minutes of glory.
     But let’s not be surprised if someone shoves us under the table.
