We may think our lives are dull and uneventful. We sometimes look to others' lives and wonder why ours isn't as exciting and interesting.

It is as if we are living in the darkness behind the glowing lights we see. However, we must bring our own light to the darkness. You yourself may not be luminous, but you are the only conductor of light.
But what exactly is darkness?

Darkness is a place of solitude, mindfulness, and uncertainty. But even in the midst of the darkness, light can come through; if only we open the door for it.

This is a call to open your door. Let that light through. Let it brighten your life and your mind with talks that help you find revelations or discoveries you never knew - ones that make your life glow, make your life LUMINOUS.


Catch us at TEDxManaratAlFaroukSchool on 18. 3. 2022 with our 4th event, where minds shine brighter than ever!

Don't let this chance slip away where great minds meet for a greater cause; that is spreading LUMINOSITY.
