I found out about this originally from a chat site I frequent, although I didn't get to see the whole thing till now.  I figured I'd post it both here and on my blog as it's something worth sharing as much as possible, as I feel it's quite insightful.  Yes, this can happen on my blog too!

 

An old Cherokee is teaching his grandson about life.

“A fight is going on inside me,” he said to the boy. “It is a terrible fight between two wolves. One is evil-filled with anger, envy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority, and ego.”

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

“This same fight is going on inside you – and inside every other person”

The grandson thought about it for a minute and then asked,

“Which wolf will win?”

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

Before I post my most up to date entry, along with finishing off that other entry from my last Ireland trip, I'm just mentioning I've set up a proper spiritual and dream journal which will deal with these topics in more detail, keeping in mind that I'm going to start up a new paranormal community while shutting down the old one... I also will be transferring my old Nikolas Rashino(v) entries to my spiritual journal and closing that one off, perhaps reserving it for Vampire: The Masquerade fan fiction or any other fiction for thatmatter, although I'd be better off using my FictionPress and FanFiction accounts for that, same username by the way.

Anyway, that's it for now.  Either way, it's time to close some old chapters and start some new.  The old entries will be transferred to the newer journals, while I reduce the amount of accounts I need to manage, to the extent that my former lyrics journal will be closed down, right after I add all the entries from it.  After that, my old entries from that journal will be moved over, so I can close that down as well and consolidate everything into one place for my personal ramblings, of course I'll need to finish off today's entry, and the entry from my last Ireland trip as well first, and after that I'll be transcribing my written entries to this journal, along with my 2001 work experience diary entries, which will be taggeed under "work experience 2001", and I get ever closer to chroniclling (sp?) my life, woohoo.

Sadly, I'll never be able to recover my first proper entry from 1998, or whenever... though I recall it being about my Xmas presents of that year.  All the same though, the fact I have any journal entries from pre-2003 is good at all, although admittedly, there's no entries to complement the 2002 one I started in uJournal, or maybe there is, not sure yet...

Either way, I have much stuff to do!

So to follow up from this morning's entry, I got myself over to Eltham and did my shopping at Iceland, went over to the cat shelter, only to find it was closed!  Same went for the PC shop, was a half day.  I spent my last 11 quid on my Iceland groceries, and lunch (or rather brunch, if not my entire daily meal!) at co-op, before heading home.  Other than that, I've done sod all... although I did pop into Eltham Spiritualist Church.. I'm gonna be dropping by on Friday to see a medium at work, which sounds pretty cool.  Other than that, on Friday I'll be getting a refund on my battery, and getting one from Argos Eltham, and I'll also be seeing Virginia and well, that's about it... my life is kinda dull at the moment.

OH!  I did get myself a new deal on a phone... my bill will be £9 less (£14 less standard) from OCtober, because I got a £14/month loyalty discount with Three, and a new phone, so I pay £21 for my current plan of 750 mins, 150 texts, 50 video calling mins, 50 MMS and £5 downloads, which is good compared to £28 for the 750 & 150 alone.  I also got XSeries for an extra fiver (£26/mo now) and also a Nokia N73, which I can use once I get it, so score.

Anyway, that's about it for now... not expecting Thursday to be terribly active, but I intend to organise my room for more space... especialy with the foodage influx.  And next month, I'll be buying cat food, to "eat".


I'll explain later, if it hasn't been explained in the last entry, but otherwise I'll leave you guessing ;)

Either way, I can see how I identify with the wolf a lot more now... it's like, wow. Oh yeah, I may be able to identify with more, but the stuff that I bolded is what I think I identify with at the moment.  I also seem to identify with the panther a lot too, and even the dragon.  Seems my tattoo choices are not a coincidence.



Edit: Adding the comment below, just in case... thank you by the way.

Wolf is the pathfinder, the forerunner of new ideas who returns to the clan to teach and share medicine. Wolf takes one mate for life and is loyal like Dog. If you were to keep company with Wolves, you would find an enourmous sense of family within the pack, as well as a strong individualistic urge. These qualities make Wolf very much like the human race. As humans we also have an ability to be a part of society and yet still embody our individual dreams and ideas.
In the Great Star Nation, Wolf is represented by the Dog Star, Sirius, which legend tells us was the original home of our teachers in ancient times. Sirius was thought to be the home of the gods by the ancient Egyptians, and is still considered so by the Dogan tribe in Africa.
The senses of Wolf are very keen, and the Moon is its power ally. The Moon is the symbol for psychic energy, or the unconscious that holds the secrets of knowledge and wisdom. If you have Wolf medicine, you may be able to share your personal medicine with others. Your intuitive side may also have an answer or teaching for your personal use. As you feel Wolf alive in you you may wish to share your knowledge by journalling, wrtiting, or lecturing on info. that helps others better understand their own uniqueness or path in life. You appreciate lonely places because they bring out the true you.

This day, I have cut another tie to my past self... goodbye.


That felt so easy to do, and so right... must have been the right time to do so... I now feel a little more complete as a result...
