“Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.”
~ Martin Luther King, Jr.
Our bodies and minds are delicate and complex systems. What we feed them matters to our health and well-being. We must we aware of our daily intake of food and information and be diligent at finding balance. It is just as important to have a healthy information diet as it is to have a healthy food diet. There are a lot of things in this world we can’t control, from the source and makeup of our food to the media’s love affair with negative, sensationalistic coverage of current events. Remember to monitor the doses of all that we take into our bodies and minds. And always seek the light. For our health and the health of those we love, choose love over hate. Mindful love practices forgiveness. Mindful love monitors what we watch and read, and seeks out information that reinforces our core essence. Mindful love demonstrates courage by not allowing the constant stream of tragedy, hate, and violence to turn us into someone who doesn’t know that love is who we are, and hate is something we learn. Choose Love.
