A Native American grandfather
was talking to his grandson about how he felt.
He said, “I feel as if I have two wolves fighting in my heart.
One wolf is a vengeful, angry violent one.
The other world is the loving, compassionate one.”
The grandson asked him,
“which wolf will win the fight in your heart?”
The grandfather answered,
“The one I feed.”

This little story is so true. We have the power within us all to be angry, vengeful, and violent. We also have the power to be loving, kind and compassionate. We have the power to complain, cajole and harass and we have the power to praise, compliment and encourage. They both always exist within us and the one that we feed will be the dominant one. Which is your dominant path? The glass half empty or half full? Essentially, that is the only difference.
One of the ways in which we feed either side of us is by making judgments and justifications from those judgments. This leads to a negative comment, but it’s really a positive comment because it is based in reality and it is justified by judgment. In other words, it’s right.
Unfortunately, that is a place from which it is very hard to escape. Once there, the tendency is to remain there and continually search for more and more judgment and justification for which to back up the negative thoughts and comments.
The good news is that by releasing one single thing, it will change everything in your life. Stop judging. Feed the love and stop judging.
I feel the love and I feed the love! Yes, and Amen!
The Less I Judge, The More I Can Love.
