When life is a chaos exterior as well as interior we can always reflect on which side we choose to nurture! We all have choices to make in life & we are the only ones that have the power to choose the right, any given moment. A struggle each & every day!!

Thanks Henriette ,Beautiful message to always remain devoted to.All week i been struggling with many of these,like i guess most do.We can't let your negative senses and emotions get the better of us, even when they sometimes appear to be right.They just drain and make us delusional.Great little video! Have a nice weekend!

Thank you Henriette! and thank you Marilynn for sending. Well that was timely! Ditto Kenny. I was just reading a post at home about horrific brutality and slaughter, in which I finally had to hit delete, because I usually go into a place of either intense sorrow where I feel utterly powerless, or hate and rage - neither works. I don't mind the sorrow where I recognize the vulnerability of human beings and feel compassion, or the anger that doesn't stay but simply spurs me to action, but it's all a careful balance, now isn't it? The last words - depends on what you feed. Yep - that hit the mark! Thank you again for another great reminder.

Thank you dear Henriette for such a wise message on this video.
It just occurred to me that the evil wolf should be better call the cancers of the soul, and yes I will take the good wolf because I can compare animals with anything that is good, but also the positive actions are equal to an spiritual immune system which can cure and eliminate all evil.
"Depends the one you feed"? Nothing closer to the truth.
Also, I share with deep understanding the comment from Constance, I found myself reacting that way many times.

Thank you so much for once again giving us something to reflect upon that can touch us in places that sometimes get so cluttered with worldly matters that we forget that they need some attention, as well as a dusting off to feel a little shine come back. 1love

There are only two basic human emotions, love and fear. All negative emotions stem from fear and thought patterns based on non truths. Love on the other hand is steeped in truth and has nothing to fear. There can only be one truth and that is the truth of love.

"Every loving thought is true. Everything else is an appeal for healing and help,
Regardless of the form it takes." - A Course in Miracles (T-12.I.3:3)

There is nothing outside of you....
What you are looking for is your Self!

THIS IS OUTRAGIOUS!!!!!!!! I worked with special ed students training them for jobs. I reported a teacher for making rude remarks about her own students. What did the board of ed do??? Transfered her to another work site :-( People like this should not be allowed to work with kids!!!!!!!

The wolf that you feed is the one that survives. Even when people are mean and cruel to you or others and we are effected by them. iIt is still up to us which, of the wolves within, that we feed. Twice I have been unjustly fire from jobs. Both times I thanked them. Both times it was for the better. I went on to better things. I could have been bitter about it and festered within. But I chose to look for the good in what happened. I FOUND IT!

Thank you, Henriette .. for the beautiful video. We all have the bad and the good inside us, and the choices we make will lead us to that place evil or good and eventually to failure or victory.
