Triumph of Light

May the light of Diwali be with all of you! In actual fact, the main Diwali (also known as Deepavali or Dipavali) festival day was yesterday, November 4th, but the celebration extends for several days every year around this time. For those readers not familiar with Diwali, you’ll find a brief synopsis of this delightful and deeply meaningful holiday in this article:

Diwali 2021: When is the festival of lights and how is it celebrated around the world?

It seems to me that the essence of an event celebrating the triumph of light over darkness should be acknowledged by all of us.

In honor of Diwali, please take a moment today to celebrate the light. It’s not that hard (or monetarily costly) to actively contribute to the light in the world. For example, you could take a moment today to bestow a random act of kindness, be it opening a door for a stranger, giving a sincere compliment from the heart,…you get the idea.

We must each aspire to behave like the light and become the light, every single day of our lives. This is how we personally vanquish darkness, candle by candle.
