turkey got gobbled
return to world cobbled
from thankful heart, how then to proceed
fable of 2 wolves residing in heart, which one do u feed?

a cherokee indian elder was teaching his grandchildren about life
“a fight is going on inside you”  for life is 10% hits happen, 90% how u cope with strife

“it is a terrible fight between two wolves
one wolf represents fear, anger, envy, sorrow, regret, arrogance, self-pity
greed, guilt, resentment, lies, false pride, ego, superiority and inferiority
the other stands for joy, peace, love, hope, sharing, serenity, humility,
kindness, benevolence, friendship, truth, compassion, faith, empathy and generosity
the same fight going on inside of you is inside every other person too,” with virtuosity
the story moves

the children thought about it for a minute, and then one child asked, “o wise kin
which wolf will win?”

the old cherokee elder replied simply,
“the one you feed,”  intentionally or unknowingly

a rabbi expressed it this way:

the 2 wolves symbolize yetzer hora, the evil inclination
and yetzer hatov, the good but unfortunately mainstream declination
lupine yetzer hora thrives on bodily appetites
while lupine yetzer hatov thrives on torah, prayer, good deeds not fights
both wolves compete to out-smother
eventually, one swallows the other

the world’s a pyramidical house of cards
when duked out, everything gets leveled, no more bards, no nothing, no if’s, no butts
ctrl-alt-delete restart, histories turn and burn
humans don’t learn, shortcuts yearn, hardwork and harmony spurn
the tensive dilemma prevails
have and have-nots, who-lords-who power-hungry trails
when we solve conditions purely on human folly and might
ignoring larger quantum particle forces at play, a costly blindsight

life sojourn and its meandering meanings begin
inside-out first not outside-in
first grapple with problem of sin
avoid nurturing soul with toxic foods and worldly din

john grant, ex-senator now writer-speaker recalls paul’s letter to the galatians
imploring them to live by the Spirit, and not gratify the desires of the sinful nature and inclinations
for the sinful nature desires what is contrary to the Spirit,
and the Spirit desires what is contrary to the sinful nature…anti-frog in warm water ribbit…..

exemplar deeds of the flesh, paul in galatians 5:19-20 spelled them out:
sexual immorality, impurity debauchery, idolatry witchcraft, hatred, discord, jealousy bout
rage fits, selfish ambition, dissensions, factions envy, drunkenness, orgies, feeding yetzer hora clout

paul then went on to enumerate the fruits of the Spirit in galatians 5:22
which are love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness
self-control, faithfulness, and gentleness

o where have been my blue-eyed son
and where have been my darling young one

i saw a newborn baby with wild wolves all around it
i saw a highway of diamonds with nobody on it
i saw a black branch with blood that kept drippin’
i saw a room full of men with their hammers a-bleedin’
i saw a white ladder all covered with water
i saw 10000 takers whose tongues were all broken
i saw guns and sharp swords in the hands of young children

and it’s a hard, it’s a hard, it’s a hard, and it’s a hard
it’s a hard rain’s a-gonna fall

i met a young child beside a dead pony
i met a white man who walked a black dog
i met a young woman whose body was burning
i met a young girl, she gave me a rainbow
i met one man who was wounded in love
i met another man who was wounded and hatred

and it’s hard, it’s a hard, it’s a hard, it’s a hard
it’s a hard rain’s a-gonna fall
