Hello Mel -
I agree, and so would the Buddha:
"When Buddha was on his death bed he noticed his young disciple Anan was
'Why are you weeping, Anan?' he asked.
'Because the light of the world is about to be extinguished and we will
be in darkness.'
The Buddha summoned up all his remaining energy and spoke what were to
be his final words on earth:
'Anan, Anan, be a light unto yourself.'"
In peace, ED
