Which Stallion Are You Feeding?

Which emotion do you feedAn old Grand Master is teaching his apprentice about life.

"A fight is going on inside me," he said to the boy.

"It is a terrible fight and it is between two stallions.

One is evil - he is anger, envy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority, and ego."

He continued,

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

Which emotion do you feedThe same fight is going on inside you - and inside every other person, too."

The apprentice thought about it for a minute and then asked his Grand Master,

"Which stallion will win?"

The old Grand Master simply replied, "The one you feed."

And that's the way it is:

Angry riders always find a way to get angry.

Sad riders always find a way to get sad.

Anxious riders always find a way to get anxious.

Critical riders always find a way to be critical.

Complaining riders always find a way to complain.

Jealous riders always find a way to get jealous.

Compassionate riders always find a way to feel compassion.

Enthusiastic riders always find a way to get enthusiastic.

Cheerful riders always find a way to get cheerful.

Grateful riders always find a way to feel gratitude.

So ask yourself:

Which primary emotion is your 'stallion'?

Which 'stallion' are you feeding?

And if you're not happy with the outcome:

Change your approach! 

Turn things around!

Turn it around by thinking of the things you are grateful for and spend some time each day practicing an attitude of gratitude.
