Which wolf is it that you are feeding?

Posted in Empowering tagged , , , , at 8:06 pm by Venus Viswambharan

A grandfather was talking to his grandson, telling him,” I have 2 wolves barking inside of me. The First wolf is filled with anger, hatred , bitterness and mostly revenge. The second wolf inside of me is flled with love, kindness, compassion and mostly forgiveness.”
“Which wolf do you think will win?” the young  boy inquired , the grandfather responded , “ Whichever one I feed”.

Lets take a look at our thoughts in a day – isn’t it easy to criticize, to find fault; to complain about the neighbourhood being unsafe, our politicians being corrupt, the pathetic state of our education system, our youth being involved in crime. The less global ones would be: how snooty our neighbour is, the abusive boss,  the mean in laws…
The thought we focus on multiplies ,drawing more of the same kind until it not only becomes a habit but it IS just what our world becomes! What you think continually is what you believe, is what you become, is what you have – a vicious cycle .
What if we concentrated our minds and energies on all the “goodness”,  we can find around us? Can we find any? It is hard, isnt it ? lets try… Appreciating , being grateful.
We have electricity today, We are connected better & quicker due to technology, Crimes are lower, myriads of diseases now have cures, so many groups and associations now focus on uplifting , healing & wellness.Closer home, The neighbour’s kids are so bright and cheerful, My colleagues are so cooperative, my Job is interesting,  My Brother in law is so caring…
Again your focus draws more of the same. A thought has a lot of power!
Which wolf is it that YOU feed?
