It’s not a costume, but since I don’t have one, here is an aspect of myself I feel so strongly, especially during the Fall. A time of going in, sweeping the leaves and brush from my bodies, burning and bringing sweet death to remnants of patterns outgrown from a long, productive season. ◇
#Repost from @instashivatribe 🌌 Shakti, the Goddess personifying divine power is worshipped in three forms – Mahakali, Mahalakshmi and Mahasaraswati. Mahakali takes away our darkness – our kaal. She takes away the darkness from everyone who strives for perfection by performing the spiritual disciplines of purifying austerities. “Kaal” also means time, and Kali means the One Who is Beyond Time. In the form of Prakriti, Mother Nature, Kali dances on the field of consciousness, depicted as the broad chest of Lord Shiva. She dances with wild and unselfconscious abandon. She is Mukti, the primal energy of spiritual freedom.

Kali Mata is the Energy of Wisdom (jnana shakti), and by Her Grace all knowledge is conceived, and all wisdom is intuited. With Her wisdom, Kali takes away the darkness of the external world. Then She bestows the True Light of the inner world. Her love and her grace are beyond what words can describe. Kali is our Mother, and the Mother of all the universes. With Her love we become unattached, and free from action and reaction – we become a silent witness resting in universal delight.

Kali Chaudas, a day before Diwali, is celebrated by worshiping Mahakali in some parts of India. Kal means Darkness; thus Kali takes away the Darkness that surround our life.[…]
