Excitement is in the air as streets and houses come alive with lights. People wearing their finest clothes and families coming together sharing love.
Yes, it’s that time of the year again!
Diwali, the Hindu festival of lights, symbolizes the spiritual victory of light over darkness and knowledge over ignorance (avidya).
It’s about igniting the light of wisdom within yourself, facing the darkness, releasing any incorrect knowledge, overcoming old patterns, old conditioning and allowing that light to shine through.
But where to start?
How can you add your light to the world right now?
Before Diwali, all houses are cleaned from top to bottom. No stone is left unturned. They are being prepared to welcome Lakshmi, the Goddess of Abundance. In the same way, you can de-clutter your mind through meditation, creating that much needed space for inspiration, creativity to arise – allowing that flow to flow through you.
Take a moment now. Come to stillness and just breathe.
And within your stillness, experience the dynamism of light - dynamic stillness. This is Chitta Prakasha, the light of consciousness.
With every breath you take, invoke light. Fill yourself with light. Experience your mind filling with light. Your heart filling with light.
Feel that light penetrating every cell, waking every cell up, becoming illuminated from the inside out. This is what enlightenment is, an ever-increasing value of light in consciousness. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
To cultivate your light even more you can go to Sattva Connect to join Lisa for her ‘Be Light!’ practice or Kavya for her ‘We are Light’ practice.
Grow your glow. Add your light to the world. Live as an example now.
Shubh Deepawali (Have an auspicious Diwali)
