In my last few posts, I’ve been exploring the relationship between our beliefs and our results. Stated simply, but accurately, our beliefs determine our thoughts, our thoughts determine our emotions, those determine our actions and our actions determine our results. So in the world of cause and effect, beliefs are cause and results are the effects.
If you’ve been following me so far, I invite you to consider the possibility that you have had far more control over the quality of your life and the quality of your relationships than you ever imagined. Consider the possibility that your satisfaction and your happiness have always been under your control and you never realized it. What an incredible opportunity you have to be satisfied, happy and surrounded by brilliant, gorgeous, talented and fabulous people.
How do you accomplish that? Remember that it’s all about those two conversations, the one from your higher consciousness and the one from your ego and which one you listen to at any given moment. You live in one conversation or the other, you project that conversation onto the world, and then you live in it as if it were the truth. That’s the way it is. Now the question is, “Will you be at the effect of a conversation you created long ago without much thought or consideration, that your ego has kept alive, or will you take responsibility for that conversation and create a world for yourself worth living in?
An old Cherokee Indian story demonstrates this choice:
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 each of us.
“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 replied, “The one you feed.”
