The Decision Maker


The children in my weekly post are on vacation, so it's just my post, you and I.

Every week, about twenty of us get together and talk, then eat lunch -- always an important aspect of the meeting! We realized the six enemies of human beings are -- Lust, Anger, Ego, attachment, Greed and Jealousy. If we can get rid of them, the life becomes peaceful! A tough call but we can try.

Then earlier this month, a friend sent an E mail about a grandfather and his grandson. The senior man said that two wolves are at a constant battle within us. The first on is the Evil wolf represented by Anger, Jealousy, Greed, Resentment, Inferiority, Lies and Ego. While the second wolf is represented by Joy, Peace, Love, Hope, Humility, Kindness, Empathy and Truth. The curious young mind wanted to know who won! The grandfather quietly replied, "The one you feed."

As our lives go on, we hear, read about what and how we should live. Ultimately, the power to follow the right path rests upon us -- you are the decision maker of your life.
