Do you have a pet? Did you grow up with one?
Well, why is it that you needed to really care for the animal? Why is it that the animal sought your attention and loving care?
Unfortunately, not many humans think much of these simple facts; and how the natural order puts humans in control in order to maintain good life and living for all concerned.
Do you have children, or do you have younger siblings at home? What role are you, your parents or older family members expected to play?
Do you think much of that? Probably not much.
Well, the reasons are more founded on the SPIRITUAL DIMENSION that you do not think much of, and many do not even acknowledge or really understand.
Every human is more of a spiritual being than we can possibly ever grasp.
Consider the following thoughtfully:
One evening an old Cherokee (American Indian) told his grandson about a battle that goes on in every person.
He said, “My son, the battle is between two ‘wolves’. One is evil — it is anger, envy, jealousy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority, and ego. The other is good — it is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion and faith.”
The grandson thought for a minute and then asked his grandfather: “Which wolf wins?” The old Cherokee simply replied, “The one you feed.”
Do you see the contrast in the quality? That is the difference between the PHYSICAL /earthly and the SPIRITUAL/heavenly qualities. Think about it!
