Feeding the Soul
Someone sent me this story today. I have seen it before and perhaps you have as well, but I thought it was worth sharing as another way to think about heart coherence. …
One evening an old Cherokee told his grandson about a
battle that goes on inside people. He said, “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.”
The grandson thought about it for a minute
and then asked his grandfather,
“Which wolf wins?”
The old Cherokee simply replied, “The one you feed.”
Practicing heart coherence is one method for “feeding” the Good wolf.
As I have discussed in previous posts, I believe balancing ourselves in a coherent heart state opens us to influx and to a greater awareness of the Good.
Another bit of inspiration I got was from Michael Gladish’s article in the January 2007 New Church Canadian about Good and Truth, but you’ll have to stay tuned for that one. 😉
