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, 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," he added. The grandchildren 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."

"We shall not cease from exploring,
and at the end of our exploration,
we will return to where we started,
and know the place for the first time." - T. S. Eliot

The master was teaching his disciple that he could always trust in God, since God was aware of everything.
Night fell and they decided to pitch camp. The master raised the tent, and the disciple was given the task of tethering the horses to a rock. The disciple thought to himself, as he stood by the rock:
The master is testing me. He said God is aware of everything, and then asked me to tie up the horses. He wants to see if I believe in…Continue
I'm in a strange mood this morning. I am uplifted, yet sad. The world out there is so complex, so diverse, and yet so singular. A few quotes following echo my mood. They say it so much better than I. Peace, light, truth, love, and a good road to all.
"The things that will destroy us are: politics without principle; pleasure without conscience; wealth without work; knowledge without character; business without morality; science without humanity; and worship without…Continue
