Depending on how much light the lamp gives off, it will show your degree of motivation to learn and grow personally. Thus, if the light is dim, it shows that your performance is minimum. You are not using your resources appropriately. You let yourself be dominated by the unwillingness and laziness. (See light ) In Tarot, the Hermit card is represented by a wise old man carrying a lamp. As in dreams, he warns that everyone should carry their own spiritual light.
