The Lessons of the Wolves

wolvestwoGrandfather Tells” also known as “The Wolves Within.

An old Grandfather said to his grandson, who came to him with anger at a friend who had done him an injustice, “Let me tell you a story.  I too, at times, have felt a great hate for those that have taken so much, with no sorrow for what they do.  But hate wears you down, and does not hurt your enemy.  It is like taking poison and wishing your enemy would die.  I have struggled with these feelings many times.”

He continued, “It is as if there are two wolves inside me.  One is good and does no harm.  He lives in harmony with all around him, and does not take offense when no offense was intended.  He will only fight when it is right to do so, and in the right way.  But the other wolf, ah!  He is full of anger.  The littlest thing will set him into a fit of temper.  He fights everyone, all the time, for no reason.  He cannot think because his anger and hate are so great.  It is helpless anger, for his anger will change nothing.  Sometimes, it is hard to live with these two wolves inside me, for both of them try to dominate my spirit.”

The boy looked intently into his Grandfather’s eyes and asked, “Which one wins, Grandfather?”
The Grandfather smiled and quietly said, “The one I feed.”

FloChapter III – The Power of the Word by Florence Scovel Shinn:

A person knowing the power of the word, becomes very careful of his conversation.  He only has to watch the reaction of his words to know they do not return void.

Someone has said courage contains genius and magic.  Face a situation fearlessly and there is no situation to face; it falls away on its own weight.  Fear attracts the problems and fearlessness removes it.

The body may be renewed and transformed through the spoken word and clear vision, and disease be completely wiped out of the consciousness.  The meta-physician knows that all disease has a spiritual and mental correspondence, and in order to heal the body one must first “heal the soul.”  The soul is the subconscious mind, and it must be “saved” from wrong thinking.

In the 23rd Psalm, we read, “He restoreth my soul.”  This means the subconscious mind or soul, must be restored with the right ideas, and the “mystical marriage” is the marriage of the soul and the spirit, or the subconscious and the super-conscious mind. They must be one.

When the subconscious is flooded with the perfect ideas of the super-conscious, God and man are one.  “I and the Father are one.”  That is, he is one with the realm of perfect ideas; he is the man made in God’s likeness and image (imagination) and is given power and dominion over all created things, his mind, body and affairs.

It is safe to say all sickness and unhappiness come from violation of the law of love.  Good-will produces an aura of protection about the one who sends it, and “No weapon that is formed against him shall prosper.”

Florence Scovel Shinn was an artist and a metaphysical teacher in New York in the early part of the 20th century. Her books are truly incredible.  They are fun, short and profound demonstrating we can enjoy a winning streak of health, prosperity, and happiness.  Florence Shinn is one of last century’s most popular Success teachers.  Her lectures were well attended and her books were popular not only in America, but also abroad.

Keep Your Fork

posted by The MEGA Coach

Keep Your ForkThere was a young woman who had been diagnosed with a terminal illness and had been given three months to live.
So as she was getting her things ‘in order,’ she contacted her Rabbi and had him come to her house to discuss certain aspects of her final wishes.  She told him which songs she wanted sung at the service, what scriptures she would like read, and what outfit she wanted to be buried in.  Everything was in order and the Rabbi was preparing to leave when the young woman suddenly remembered something very important to her.

‘There’s one more thing,’ she said excitedly.  ‘What’s that?’ came the Rabbi’s reply. ‘This is very important,’ the young woman continued. ‘I want to be buried with a fork in my right hand.’  The Rabbi stood looking at the young woman, not knowing quite what to say.  ‘That surprises you, doesn’t it?’ the young woman asked.  ‘Well, to be honest, I’m puzzled by the request,’ said the Rabbi.

The young woman explained.  ‘My grandmother once told me this story and from that time on I have always tried to pass along its message to those I love and those who are in need of encouragement.
In all my years of attending socials and dinners, I always remember that when the dishes of the main course were being cleared, someone would inevitably lean over and say, ‘Keep your fork.’  It was my favorite part because I knew that something better was coming…like velvety chocolate cake or deep-dish apple pie.  ‘Something wonderful, and with substance!’

‘So, I just want people to see me there in that casket with a fork in my hand and I want them to wonder’ What’s with the fork?’  Then I want you to tell them: ‘Keep your fork ..the best is yet to come.’

The Rabbi’s eyes welled up with tears of joy as he hugged the young woman good-bye.  He knew this would be one of the last times he would see her before her death.  But he also knew that the young woman had a better grasp of heaven than he did.  She had a better grasp of what heaven would be like than many people twice her age, with twice as much experience and knowledge.  She KNEW that something better was coming.

At the funeral people were walking by the young woman’s casket and they saw the cloak she was wearing and the fork placed in her right hand.  Over and over, the Rabbi heard the question, ‘What’s with the fork?’  And over and over he smiled.

During his message, the Rabbi told the people of the conversation he had with the young woman shortly before she died.  He also told them about the fork and about what it symbolized to her.  He told the people how he could not stop thinking about the fork and told them that they probably would not be able to stop thinking about it either.

He was right.  So the next time you reach down for your fork let it remind you, ever so gently, that the best is yet to come.

Friends are a very rare jewel, indeed.  They make you smile and encourage you to succeed.  Cherish the time you have, and the memories you share.  Being friends with someone is not an opportunity but a sweet responsibility.

And keep your fork!

The Most Powerful Force

posted by The MEGA Coach

acknowledgement IILove is the most powerful force in the universe and love is God’s gift and blessing to us. God’s unconditional love is always available, every moment.

By sharing our love and kindness with others we fulfill our highest potential.  Love is our natural essence and true legacy.  True service and caring for people is a form of love.

Life is a process, a journey full of lessons and growth.  It is an opportunity to actualize our divine potential.  Life is also a package deal, as there is duality to the universe – good and bad, happy and sad, healthy and sick, rich and poor, joy and sorrow, etc.

Everything is temporary except love.  Everything comes and goes except love.

“Kindness is a language that we all can understand. Even the blind can see it and the deaf can hear it.”
Mother Teresa

“When you are inspired by some great purpose, some extraordinary project, all your thoughts break their bonds: Your mind transcends limitations, your consciousness expands in every direction, and you find yourself in a new, great, and wonderful world. Dormant forces, faculties and talents become alive, and you discover yourself to be a greater person by far than you ever dreamed yourself to be.”
Patanjali

Small steps add up to big movements one step at a time.  Be patient and supportive of yourself.  Make a small change or learn something new every day and see how much you have grown in 30 days.

Be consistent, move gently and steadily in the same direction.
