Happy Diwali – Festival of Light dear Yogi Friends!
Yes, today is the highlight of Diwali - the Festival of Lights. It's the 3rd day of the 5 day celebration. This highlight is celebrated on the day of the New Moon either at the end of October or the Beginning of November and today is the day!
Wherever we are in the world – this is worth celebrating! Celebrating the victory of light over darkness and most importantly celebrating our own Inner Light!
This beautiful candle flame inside of us is always there and always alight – nothing can blow out this candle light! Absolutely nothing!
In our current situation with this Covid-19 pandemic it is more important than ever for us to remember this light inside of us – that always shines no matter what! We are pure light inside!
So whenever we find ourselves in darkness, let’s remember this light inside of and shine that light into the darkness. Whatever situation we find ourselves in: let’s first ask ourselves, what can I do about it? – if there is nothing we can do about it, let’s accept this situation for what it is. Acceptance brings a new foundation with it, a new ground level and from this level we are then able to make the best of whatever there is for US – and shine our Inner Light on it!
In all the ups and downs of life and my very own mood fluctuations I do remember that light. I feel whatever I am feeling that very moment, yet I am not becoming it – as I know there is this light inside of me that is my true nature!
Om Jyoti dear Yogi Friends and Happy Diwali!
