Diwali, or in Sanskrit, Deepavali, translates as “Rows of Lights.”
It is the Hindu Festival of Lights.

It occurs in the Autumn, although the exact date moves around based on Lunar Cycles — it takes place on the fifteenth day of Kartik, the Holiest Month in the Hindu Lunar Calendar. Diwali lasts five days and the main celebration takes place on the third day.

Diwali is this week!

Good over Evil,

I am Enough!
I have Enough!
I do Enough!
I give Enough!…
And to always align with their own Inner Being about how Truthful these statements feel,
in terms of how they are Showing Up for their Life
at any given moment.

What is Masculinity?
Masculinity is Gentleness.
