Love is the greatest power of all.
Millions of songs & poems have been written about it. The capacity our hearts have to give love is immense. Truly, when we fall in love there is no greater feeling of invincibility in the world.
We are all living in dark times. Political Demigods incite Hatred & division amongst us. Where there is fear, there is hate. Hate perpetuates homophobia, racism, misogyny etc.
Each & every one of us has a shadow side.
It reminds me of this native Indian proverb:
One evening an old Cherokee told his grandson about a battle that goes on inside people.
He said, “My son, the battle is between two “wolves” inside us all.
One is Evil. It is anger, envy, jealousy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority, and ego.
The other is good. It is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion and faith.”
The grandson thought about it for a minute and then asked his grandfather: “Which wolf wins?”
The old Cherokee simply replied, “The one you feed.”
Our life experience dictates which wolf you feed. Our internal battles influences each decision we make. The wolf is another term for your ego. If your ego is in the driving seat you are in trouble, but if you temper your ego with wisdom from your soul..your choices will be balanced by love.
There are days, we allow a driver to cut in front of us…and there are other days we stubbornly block them! All of these choices are dictated by our moods.
Here’s the thing, we gave the capacity to spread so much love. We can be a light in another person’s day, sometimes without even knowing. Choose kindness every time. As we are all fighting different battles within us at any given time. Why do we have one day to celebrate love?
Truly every day is an opportunity to celebrate love in your life? To say “I love you”, to a loved one, to give a compliment , to spread a little kindness. To practise self love.
If you knew how much power that beautiful heart of yours holds, you are a walking divine miracle.
May you walk this year surrounded by love.
May you acknowledge the divine in you.
May you be grateful for the love that surrounds you
May you know you are loved more then you know….
Happy Valentine’s Day ❤️
