FEED THE GOOD WOLF

Through our Daily Spiritual Practice we begin to…

Feed the good wolf

There is an old tale of wisdom, it is a story of an Indian grandfather teaching his grandson through the power of myth….

“ONE EVENING, AN ELDERLY
CHEROKEE BRAVE 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 THOUGH ABOUT
IT FOR A MINUTE AND THEN ASKED
HIS GRANDFATHER:

“WHICH WOLF WINS?…”

THE OLD CHEROKEE SIMPLY REPLIED,
“THE ONE THAT YOU FEED” 

Daily Spiritual Affirmation: I am the good, I am the truth, I am love … the rest is just an opportunity to remember who I am.

Daily Spiritual Action: Today, I will choose connection, harmony and serenity.  Each time my ego wants to take over I will visualize the two wolves inside my soul and recommit to staying true to myself, the good wolf.  I will remember that the good wolf always gives me what I authentically desire, love.
