Which Wolf Are You Feeding ?

Comments

    Whichever has the most piercing puppy-dog eyes.
    Kidding of course, though obviously to me I am feeding the wrong one too often.

    Finding inspiration..

    "Restraint with the eye is good,
    good is restraint with the ear.
    Restraint with the nose is good,
    good is restraint with the tongue.
    Restraint with the body is good,
    good is restraint with speech.
    Restraint with the heart is good,
    good is restraint everywhere."
    Dhp 360-361

    "When I pushed forward, I was whirled about. When I stayed in place, I sank. And so I crossed over the flood without pushing forward, without staying in place."

  • Ah yes, the parable of the two Wolves.
    Thus it is that:
    You become what you allow yourself to become.
    You feeds the wolf you want
    The choice is always yours.

    Peace to all

  • Yes the choice is ours , but at times if one is not mindful, the angry wolf might sneak into the kitchen and helps itself ...

  • What if what you see are mere empty reflections?

    The body is the Bodhi Tree,
    the mind is the stand for a bright mirror -
    at all times diligently polish
    to remain untainted by dust.

    Shen Tsiu

    Bodhi is originally without any tree;
    The bright mirror is also not a stand.
    Originally there is not a single thing —
    Where could any dust alight?

    Hui Neng

    So long as there is a wolf, you'll have to keep feeding it.
    What if there was never any wolf in the first place?
