Spring time – a time for renewal.   1 comment


An elder Cherokee was teaching his grandchildren about life. He said to them, “A fight is going on inside me. It is a terrible fight, and it is between two wolves.

One wolf represents fear, anger, envy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority, and ego.

The other stands for joy, peace, love, hope, sharing, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, friendship, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion, and faith.

This same fight is going on inside you and inside every other person, too.”

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

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

Springtime – a time for renewal. Nature takes the lead, one we must follow, for we are not separate from nature. How we follow depends on whether we are led by our “I” or “thou.” Make this spring your “thou” spring.
