A New Spin On An Old Cherokee Proverb: The Tale of Two Wolves – Which One Wins?

There’s an old Cherokee tale in which a Grandfather is talking to his grandson and he says, Grandson, inside each of us are two wolves. And they are at war with each other.  And one wolf is a Dark Wolf.  It’s angry. It’s fearful. It’s feeds on lies of judgment. It feels separate. It’s greedy.  It’s jealous. It’s hateful.  It destroys possibilities and kills magic.  It is cut off from the power of Source energy.  And then there is a light wolf.  It emanates total allowance and exhibits a space of no judgment.  It is kind and generous, caring and benevolent. It chooses bravely and dares to be different.  It trusts that it will be guided by Source.  When it asks, it receives all that it requires from Source. It is in communion with the chaotic elements of the Universe.  It expresses joy.   It follows the nudges of it’s creative consciousness. It is quick to see, know and follow it’s truth. 

And the grandchild looks up at the grandfather and says, “Well which wolf is going to win?” And the grandfather smiles and says, “Whichever you feed.”

which wolf will winInside each of us is a dark wolf and a light wolf.

Anything you see on news media, any heinous acts you see other human beings doing to the world or to each other… inside each of us lies that potentiality.  

One thing that we are not told about how to bring in the light and thwart the dark forces is the following tool I learned from my work with Access Consciousness.  When you resist and react to something you see as “wrong,” the resulting polarity of that which you judge as ‘bad,’ ‘mean,’ ‘awful,’ viscious,’ and ‘terrible,’ sticks you with experiencing more of what you have judged as ‘wrong,’ and do not want.  This also occurs when you align and agree with what you see and judge it as ‘right,’  ‘good,’ ‘perfect,’ and ‘correct.’  And what you feel right about sticks you even more, because you are not as willing to let go of that positive judgment, or polarity.

Think of American politics right now.  It is a insane landmine of fixed points of views of what is right and what is wrong.  If you can’t be the energy of “Interesting Point of View,” with all of the malestrom of fixed points of views, you will be swallowed up.

To put it simply, when you align and agree with a point of view, or when you resist and react to what you are seeing, you actually feed that point of view.  You make it more real.  You lock it into place.  It becomes a solidity in your reality!

How do you get out of the trap of polarity? By being the energy of interesting point of view.  What if everything is just an interesting point of view?  Yes, every point of view.  By being “interesting point of view” and having total allowance, you can undo the solidity of the fixed points of views you’ve locked into place.your-point-of-view-creates-your-reality-reality-does-not-create-your-point-of-view-what-if-you-could-shift-your-point-of-view-so-you-can-have-a-different-reality-dr-dain-heer-1

How do you become the space of total allowance?  By asking the universe to show you what that energy is for you!  One question you can ask is “What energy, space, and consciousness can I be the total allowance and no judgment I truly be?”  When you are in total allowance, you are like the rock in the stream.  Everything that comes at you goes around you.  You can not be washed away.  When you are not functioning from total allowance, all points of views that come at you sweep you up and wash you down river.

Every time somebody comes at you with a strong point of view and you can say, “Ah, interesting point of view,” and be in allowance of it, you have shifted the consciousness of the world because you have not bought it, you have not made it more solid, you have not gone into agreement with it, you have not resisted it, you have not reacted to it, you have not made it reality.  You have allowed reality to shift and change.  Only allowance creates change. 

Let’s ask questions.  Let’s also choose, choose, and choose again, to invoke, instill, and tug in a new consciousness, a quickening of vibration, and light that will allow for us to be sustained on this beautiful planet.

To go back to the Cherokee tale…Realize that at all times you’re feeding one of these two wolves inside of you.

And the one that will win is the one that you feed the most.

What gets expressed and demonstrated in this world is determined by what’s been fed.

Action for today:

Cut out the dark food- sensational news, distracting RSS feeds, mind numbing tv, violent movies – the stuff breeds darkness and fear in your being.

Today feed your light “wolf” by asking Infinite Questions. Ask the following questions:  What energy, space, and consciousness can I be to choose the lightness of me I truly be ? What can I be and do different today to bring me more possibilities right away?  What can I add to my life today to bring to me the world I know is possible?” Trust your awareness.  Act on your impressions to express kindness, generosity, natural joy, etc.

Then start feeding your light wolf with nutritious energies. Ones filled with empowering, inspirational messages like the ones you find on my website.  Share this blog post.
