Light & Darkness

img_4342Darkness will always seek light.  At night, we turn lights on to eliminate darkness.  Negative people seek out positive people.  Opposite attracts. We need both sides of a coin to make it work.  In a strange and enlightening way, we need darkness to enjoy the light, the clarity of negativity.

Find the positive in the midst of negativity, especially during the holiday season.  Find some “me” time.

Festival of Lights

Divali, the Festival of Lights was celebrated all over the world during the end of October.The significance surrounds the story of a great Prince sent into exile by his father encouraged by his step-mother.  He stayed in exile for 14 years and on his return to the village, on the darkest night of the year, villagers starting lighting lights to show him the way home.

The whole kingdom was glowing with lights. Symbolically light removes darkness, positive removes negative. The victory of good over evil. The Divali lights illuminate our homes and our hearts.

People are in a festive mood, cooking sweets and enjoying family, performing prayers in preparation to light their lights.

Mother Lakshmi, the Goddess of Wealth and Prosperity, is also honored during Divali. She emerged this night during the churning of the ocean as a representation of strength and prosperity. People pray to her for financial abundance especially during this auspicious time.
