anecdote 8 – THE STORY OF THE TWO WOLVES


________________________________________________
the story of the two wolves
ONE EVENING AN OLD CHEROKEE TOLD HIS GRANDSON ABOUT A BATTLE THAT GOES ON INSIDE PEOPLE.
OLD CHEROKEE
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.
GRANDSON
Which wolf wins?
OLD CHEROKEE
The one you feed.
dominus tecum
the war between Jesus and satan
is a war inside each of us
everyday they fight for our soul
which one wins? same answer

________________________________________________
we must be consoled by the fact that
there is always a sunrise after every sunset
a calm after every storm
peace after war
goodwill after malice
forgiveness after vengeance
reconciliation after conflict
and love after hatred
we just have to wait patiently
for the wheel to turn

we make a living
by what we get
but we make a life
by what we give

some people
no matter how old they get
never lose their beauty
they merely move it
from their faces into their hearts

OUR PRAYER WARRIORS SAY
READING THE PRAYER REQUEST BULLETIN
ABOUT PEOPLE ASKING FOR HOPE AND FOR HEALING
IS A FORM OF DEEP MEDITATION
IT IS EVEN BETTER THAN MEDITATION
MEDITATION IMPLIES A LOOKING INWARD
INTO YOUR OWN SOUL
THIS IS A LOOKING OUTWARD
ON OTHER PEOPLE’S SOUL
WHEN YOU LOOK INWARD
YOU SEE VOID AND EMPTINESS
YOU ARE A MYSTERY TO YOURSELF
BUT WHEN YOU LOOK OUTWARD
YOU DISCOVER YOURSELF IN OTHERS
THEY ARE THE MIRROR
OF THE BEAUTY OF YOUR OWN SOUL
IT IS LIKE THE SONG
on a clear day, rise and look around you
and you will see who you are
YOU SEE BY LOOKING OUT NOT IN
YOU CAN NEVER SEE INSIDE YOURSELF
EXCEPT BY LOOKING OUTSIDE AT OTHERS
THAT IS WHY PRAYER WARRIORS
ARE HAPPY HELPING OTHERS
REACHING OUT AND GIVING HOPE TO THE DESPERATE
GIVING EVEN JUST A TINY CANDLE LIGHT
IN OTHER PEOPLE’S TOTAL DARKNESS
PLEASE READ AND FIND OUT WHAT WE MEAN
PLEASE JOIN THE PRAYER WARRIORS
AND OPEN UP A NEW WORLD
A NEW WINDOW IN YOUR SOUL
WHERE BLINDING LIGHT CAN POUR IN
