Mindful Living by Becky, Chanting Stork Yoga: The Power of Love

Love is the highest vibration we can offer out to the world.

As we steer into our last few weeks of 2023, a year of highs, lows, and everything in between. The one thing this year has taught me is that LOVE prevails. Love heals. Love is caring. Love is kindness to your neighbour. Love is inclusive. Love is a million songs, poems and big fat books of romantic stories.

Love is raw, authentic, it is real.
It can be complicated and simply beautiful.
It is part of all of us, like breathing in and breathing out.

Here is a short narrative to serve as a reminder that we have the power to decide where to focus our inner energy.

An old Cherokee is teaching his grandson about life.
“A fight is going on inside me,” he said to the boy. “It is a terrible fight and it is between two wolves. One is evil – he is anger, envy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority, and ego.”
He continued, “The other is good – he is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion, and faith. The same fight is going on inside you – and inside every other person, too.”

The grandson thought about it for a minute and then asked his grandfather, “Which wolf will win?”

The old Cherokee simply replied, “The one you feed.”

So, let’s stay strong and hold on to the goodness that permeates both the outside world and our own selves. So we may absorb the good things that feed the love wolf.

Let us remain resilient to disperse the LOVE energy and support the uplift of others in this world.
