February is the month of love. This year I can feel an even stronger presence of love with Valentine's Day falling on the eve of Chinese New Year. Where can you find love? How do you foster loving relationships? Why is love so difficult?
Questions related to love are the most common questions I hear from you at Origin Yoga & Wellness. Zen Master Chang often tells this story for those seeking love and abundance in their life.
"When we see a beautiful butterfly, we chase after it with a net hoping to catch it and keep it for our own. But the more you chase after the butterfly obsessively, the more it runs away. If you instead focus your energy on blossoming into a magnificent flower, one day the beautiful butterfly will naturally come to land on your petals."
That's the thing with love and anything else you desire in life. Set your intentions for what you what but don't obsessively chase after it. Work on loving yourself first with joy and compassion. Blossom into the best version of yourself you can possibly be. One day, you will find what you're looking for is already yours.
Our team at Origin Yoga & Wellness wishes you a Happy Valentine's Day and Lunar New Year filled with love!
