Diwali is one of the biggest Hindu festivals celebrated as a mark of victory of good over evil.
Lord Rama completed 14 years of exile to the forests and faced all the demons. He returned with his wife and younger brother by either conquering those demons or befriending them with his courage and wisdom.
Traditionally, homemade pure organic cotton buds dipped in pure ghee are lit to spread light in the darkness of night.
Metaphorically Diwali for our soul is to go inwards into the wilderness or forest of our inner self and face our inner demons with courage and wisdom. We can then dissolve our thoughts dipped in our own deep knowing/wisdom rather than external influences. Then we too can spread light in our inner dark spaces.
There are challenges in both but the results quite different. One hides you, keeps you safe but disempowers you and the other polishes and shines your light by creating some short-term friction, but empowers you in the long run. You become your own leader.
The journey of a marble statue was that it was ready to be chiseled, while the marble slab stayed safe on the floor with other tiles.
Dare to discover the road less traveled to find your strength, wisdom, and uniqueness!
That is Diwali for our soul - by lighting all the darkness in and around us.
