“Regardless of the conditions of the outside world, we are each here to transform our own lives from the inside and become a full expression of our unique soul.” So says Michael Meade when he talks about one of his favorite stories, The Tiger’s Whisker.  This episode of Living Myth includes a full telling of the famous tale of a woman who must face a living tiger in order to cure the ailment in her soul.  What begins as a small village tale opens up to become the endless territory of the human heart that harbors an old sage, a fierce tiger and the need to find a cure for love. In a world troubled with collective anxiety and growing fears, it is helpful to know that on a path with heart, fear is the guide and what you truly love is the cure.

‘Run towards the roar,’ the old people used to tell the young ones. When faced with great danger and when people panic and seek a false sense of safety, run towards the roaring and go where you fear to go. For only in facing your fears can you find some safety and a way through. When the world rattles and the end seems near, go towards the roar.
