The “Good And Bad Dog” In Us

“A Native American elder once described his own inner struggles in this manner: “Inside of me there are two dogs. One of the dogs is mean and evil. The other dog is good. The mean dog fights the good dog all the time.” When asked which dog wins, he reflected for a moment and replied, “The one I feed the most.” ~ Unattributed …

Which dog do you feed the most in your life? Is it the “good dog,” the one that is kind, compassionate, gentle, and filled with joy, or is it the “evil dog,” who harbors feelings of hatred, envy, violence, and misery? It is very important that we ask ourselves this question from time to time, and then make an effort to contemplate the answer as it pertains to our lives. For within this question lies the answer to who we are now… and we we are becoming.
