Seeking the light within- Happy Diwali

Within us there is good and there is bad.
The line separating them is so thin that
their allies, love and anger respectively,
fall in the same color wavelength, red.

Evil powers have manipulated us in such a way that we have made darkness our home and never try to come out of the illusion. The allies of bad powers like ego, hatred, anger, greediness, lust, fame, desires et cetera have occupied our brains and we think this is how we should be. Proud and arrogant. How ignorant we are! We are falling to their plot (evil forces).

There are lanterns in bodies precisely planted in such a way by the creator that we can feel ourselves as blissful and enlightened every moment, people used to feel so in ancient times. But when evil powers took over they occupied all the lands of lanterns in our body and filled them with darkness. Good forces being good in nature, tried to prevent this tragedy and made a deal with them. The deal was that if humans try to come out of darkness and search for light within, evil forces will leave the lands of lanterns back to the good forces. Good forces were very confident that humans will definitely search for light. But then the darkness took over. Mind control was the technique. We all stopped searching for light and embraced the darkness. The dust formed on lanterns made us feel alone and fearful. We gave up. We made the darkness the ruler. Anger, ego, misery, lust, hatred, immoral all these became our measuring elements. The more of these, the more powerful we are in others’ perspective. But remember even oceans of darkness cannot satisfy us while even a pinch of light can make us feel blissful and happy.

We cannot seek the light because they have been covered by dust, our deeds, our actions. We have become very evil. Dark powers know they are in control. But still there is a way. We need a light to remove our ignorance. So it is time to burn ego, hatred, lust, misery, greediness in our minds and create a fire in our minds. The light of fire. This move will throw away all the dark powers out of control and will give indication to the good forces that humans are seeking for the light, once again. It’s time for a cleaner home in which we live, our body. Let’s clean away all the evil forces out. They are like parasites which need a host for food. Once you resist their entrance into you, they will become weaker and perish.

This Diwali, the festival of lights, let’s fill our dark-filled ignorance with colorful knowledge. Burn all the evil forces within and seek for the light within. Wishing you all a very very happy Diwali. Have a bright and colorful year ahead.

First of all wishing every one a very very happy Diwali. Diwali, which is known to be a festival of lights is also a festival which bring prosperity and happiness. We celebrate it by burning crackers and by offering pooja to the Goddess Lakshmi. Before the onset of Diwali every family keeps their homes clean as there is a belief that the Goddess Lakshmi visits and blesses the homes which are clean and well decorated with lights.

So let’s take one more step towards the deeper interpretation of Diwali festival. Our body, the homes in which we live literally, also needs to be blessed with happiness and prosperity. Isn’t there a need to clean our body!? Remove all the badness that has found a home in your body. Let only the good rule your body. That’s why people celebrate Diwali as even Happy new year. The death of bad within us and rebirth of good. So let’s celebrate Diwali as a festival of new birth, new mindset.

What is the significance of burning crackers on the day of Diwali? The significance of burning crackers is to remind the victory of good over bad. Even though the bad may be heavier than the good in some cases, the weight of badness itself causes it to drown in the oceans of time and makes the good victorious. It is always the good that wins over the bad and bad burn to ashes.

What’s the significance of decorating homes with diyas and worshipping Goddess Lakshmi for prosperity and happiness?
So this decoration is an indication to follow your instinct. To decorate your home with diyas means to burn your passion with confidence and spread the light within your body. To decorate your body with passion, confidence and to shine from within. To decorate your souls with flowers of goodness and sweets of happiness.

It is time to carry this flame of our passion forward to the generations to come. So let’s build the walls of Diwali, which prevents the bad to enter our body and also which keeps the good within us safe and comfortable. Let the good in you rule the homely body. Decorate your soul and shine from within. Happy diwali. Happy new year.
