I think my New Year's resolution will be to focus more on the positive than I have been. Our thoughts are very powerful, and while it's important to expose the dirt, we shouldn't ruminate over it, should we? There's truth to this old Cherokee saying:
"My son, there's a battle between two wolves inside us all.
On is Evil. It's anger, jealousy, greed, resentment, inferiority, lies and ego.
The other is Good. It's joy, peace, love, hope, humility, kindness, and truth."
The boy thought about it, and asked:
"Grandfather, which wolf wins?"
The old man quietly replied:
"The one you feed."
Clarity provided this video in a comment on Smoking Mirrors. A lot of it rings true to me as well.
