Sunday 18 November 2012 – An old Cherokee saying…

An old Cherokee Indian told his grandson: “My son there is a battle between two wolves inside of us all. One is evil, it is anger, jealousy, greed, resentment, inferiority, lies and ego. The other is good. Its joy, peace, love, hope, humility, kindness and truth”.

The boy thought about it and asked: “Grandfather, which wolf wins”?

The old man quietly replied: “The one you feed”…

There is deep wisdom to be found in this. When we give energy and attention to anything in our lives we are consumed by it. To what extent depends on how much intent we place behind our attention to that particular experience. It is crucial we consider carefully every experience we choose to partake in through life, for it lays the foundations for who we become. Our immediate sphere of influence largely determines how we behave, who we become, the direction of our relationships, our attitudinal beliefs and approach towards life. We must choose wisely for it is imperative to our own personal growth and to humanity as a collective whole that the choices we make as individuals are a sincere reflection for all. What we choose to experience will benefit all if it is educative, awareness building, encompassed with love and is real in its intent and its motive. ONE individual has the power to influence many, imagine we were all that one individual… Simply contemplate, reflect and allow your intuition to guide you when in doubt… SS.
