What’s Inside MUST Come Out

What comes out when you squeeze an Orange? Orange juice of course, and why’s that? Because that’s what’s inside the Orange.

When we act out in anger and rage and frustration during the course of the day – the reason we behave that way is because that’s what’s inside us.

If we meet a person who is at peace and calm accepting things as they are regardless of what happens it’s because that’s what’s inside them.

So the question becomes how do we get good stuff inside? The answer is we put it there.

And how do we put it there? We read spiritual material, pray, meditate, go to meetings, meet with our sponsor or sponsees, and put good data in our minds so that when something happens we respond in a positive way.

We do not listen to negative things, be around overly negative people, read or watch violence, good data in, good data out. bad data in, bad data out.

Which Wolf Do You Feed?

An elder Cherokee Native American 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, pride, and superiority.

The other wolf 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 of you and 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 I feed.
