Cherokee Fable on Good and Evil

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."

"Light is fatal to darkness."

Light does not resist or avoid darkness.

It merely includes it, welcomes it.
Thus, darkness disappears into the light.

Light is not afraid of the shadow
for it knows the appearance of the shadow
is the first sign of illumination.

When the shadow cannot provoke our fear, it has 

no power to undermine us. ~ Paul Ferrni

it has no power to undermine us.

What is love?

"Love is first a state of being and then an outer action. Love is first of all what you inwardly are, and secondly, what you do. It must come in this order, otherwise, it is not love but something masquerading as love." ~ Psycho-Pictography
