I read this short story the other day:

A Native American grandfather was talking to his grandson about how he
felt.

He said, “I feel as if I have two wolves fighting in my heart.
One wolf is the vengeful, angry, violent one. The other wolf is the
loving, compassionate one.”

The grandson asked him, “Which wolf will win the fight in your heart?”

The grandfather answered: “The one I feed.”

The one I feed, indeed!  I have two wolves in my heart, too. One that is kind and loving and one
that judges me. This is not unlike Abe’s reaching for the better
feeling thought. But I put a little different spin on it and I call it
feeding the Lover. So with this thought I am thinking: I don’t know why
this isn’t working for me, there are lots of people that say it worked
for them…. who am I feeding? The one who judges or the Lover. Who
do I want to feed? Who cares about me more than anything? Who has the
capacity to love me, to comfort me more than anyone? I do.

It’s a good reminder, with this thought I am thinking, who am I feeding right now?  I choose Lover.  Who do you choose to feed today?
