There Is A Battle Of Two Wolves Inside Us All.

One is evil. It is anger, jealousy, greed, resentment, lies, inferiority, and ego.

The other is good. It is joy, peace, love, hope, humility, kindness, empathy, and truth.

The wolf who wins?

The one you feed.

"Perhaps the most valuable result of all education is the ability to make yourself do the thing you have to do when it ought to be done, whether you like it or not.

"It is the first lesson that ought to be learned; and however early a man's training begins, it is probably the last lesson that he learns thoroughly."

"....when a man is in turmoil, how shall he find peace,
save by staying patient till the stream clears?
How can a man's life keep its course if he will not let it flow?
Those who flow as life flows know they need no other force:
They feel no wear, they feel no tear. They need no mending, no repair."

Re: "Quotables"
Conflict of the Opposites

I wonder if there is such a thing as evil? Please give your attention, go with me, let us inquire together. We say there is good and evil. There is envy and love, and we say that envy is evil and love is good. Why do we divide life, calling this good and that bad, thereby creating the conflict of the opposites? Not that there is not envy, hate, brutality in the human mind and heart, an absence of compassion, love, but why do we divide life into the thing called good and the thing called evil? Is there not actually only one thing, which is a mind that is inattentive? Surely, when there is complete attention, that is, when the mind is totally aware, alert, watchful, there is no such thing as evil or good; there is only an awakened state. Goodness then is not a quality, not a virtue, it is a state of love. When there is love, there is neither good nor bad, there is only love. When you really love somebody, you are not thinking of good or bad, your whole being is filled with that love. It is only when there is the cessation of complete attention, of love, that there comes the conflict between what I am and what I should be. Then that which I am is evil, and that which I should be is the so-called good.You watch your own mind and you will see that the moment the mind ceases to think in terms of becoming something, there is a cessation of action which is not stagnation; it is a state of total attention, which is goodness.

The real self is dangerous;

dangerous to the established CHURCH,

dangerous to the STATE,

dangerous to the CROWD,

dangerous to TRADITION,

because once a MAN knows his REAL SELF;
