SHIFTING WHICH ONE I FEED

Every day I have choices to make, I try really hard to be mindful of the positive light God shines on me and not be derailed by the negative forces that be. I have two choices at any given moment…I can feed the light or feed the darkness, the only one that will be seen by others is the one I choose to feed…I always try to elevate myself to the light. If I choose the light over and over then I’m convinced I will become the light and the light will be all people can see in me.

 

People often ask me if I believe there is good and evil. My answer is yes, but both are only inside us. I do not believe there is some big scary devil out there trying to take us down to hell. I believe it’s completely internal, it’s about positive and negative forces. We all deal with this and it’s up to us to take control and realize that we have the choice and the power to control these forces.

 

Our negative thoughts can create anxiety, anger, resentment and jealousy. Negative thinking is normal. However, if
this way of thinking
becomes incessant, it can lead to depression and self-destructive behavior like addictions, derailing us from what we want most in life. Certainly, many would agree that our thoughts come and go so quickly that it’s seems impossible to notice them, but with awareness and an attitude of self-love, we can redirect our negative thoughts to more positive ones. There is an Indian legend that I think illustrates my point beautifully.

 

Two Wolves is a Cherokee Indian legend and it illustrates the most important battle of our lives .¨ the one between the good and bad within us all. Here is how the story goes:

An old Cherokee is teaching his grandson about life. “A fight is going on inside me,” he said to the boy.

“It is a terrible fight and it is between two wolves. One is evil .¨ he is anger, envy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority, and ego.” He continued, “The other is good .¨ he is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion, and faith. The same fight is going on inside you .¨ and inside every other person, too.”

The grandson thought about it for a minute and then asked his grandfather, “Which wolf will win?”

The old Cherokee simply replied, “The one you feed.”

What we hold within ourselves can be our own worst enemy. Think about which you are feeding.

We can create greater peace, confidence and a more positive outlook by learning how to manage our thoughts. After all, this battle can be won because God gave us
the power of choice!

Which wolf are you feeding?

Remember, you
always have a choice.

I believe that practicing gratitude and choosing the light (positivity) will eventually transform us into the light we desire to become.

 

Here are my top 5 Ways to Practice Gratitude for a Happier Life, and a life filled with light.

“Gratitude is not only the greatest of virtues, but the parent of all others.” ~Cicero

To be grateful is to be happy.

  1. Compliment others daily.

 

“When you realize there is nothing lacking, the whole world belongs to you.” ~Lao Tzu

  1. Remember: There is nothing lacking, there is an abundance of everything.


  1. Make a habit of the phrase “thank you”.

 

“It’s not easy being grateful all the time. But it’s when you feel least thankful that you are most in need of what gratitude can give you.” ~Oprah Winfrey

 

  1. Begin and end your day with gratitude.

 

  1. Celebrate each moment of your life…CELEBRATE!


I always try to elevate myself to the light. If I choose the light over and over then

I’m convinced I will become the light and the light will be all people see.”
