Again….

Our prayers go out to those families suffering following the Bastille Day attack in Nice France.

Overwhelming heartache yet again.

Evil does exist.  There is a darkness in the world.  There are dark places of our nature that strive towards cruelty.

And there is the opposite as well.  There is love and compassion.  There is a light in the world.  There are the better angels of our nature that strive towards kindness.  It is the message Christ lived.

Days like today are for simple messages….

One evening an old Cherokee told his grandson about a great battle that goes on inside people.

He said, “My son, the battle ins between wolves inside us all.  One is evil – it is anger, envy, jealousy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, violence and lies.

The other is good – it is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion, and faith.

The grandson thought about it for a minute then asked his grandfather: “Which wolf wins?”

The old Cherokee simply replied, “The one you feed.”

    And as the relation of heaven to hell and of hell to heaven is like the relation between two opposites which mutually act contrary to each other, and from the action and reaction of which an equilibrium results, which gives permanence to all things of their action and reaction, so in order that all things and each thing may be kept in equilibrium it is necessary that he who rules the one should rule the other; for unless the same Lord restrained the uprisings from the hells and checked insanities there, the equilibrium would perish and everything with it.
