Many traditions speak of the opposing forces within us, vying for our attention. Native American stories speak of two wolves, the angry wolf and the loving wolf, who both live inside of us.
Our life experiences grow out of the wolf we feed. Too often it seems the easiest path is to engage in hate and fear, rather than be compassionate, loving, truthful, and generous. We need to bring mindfulness to our daily life, paying attention to the angry wolf and catching our emotions and thoughts as they arise, if we want to live a peaceful, successful, and happy life.
In this video narrated by Sharon Salzberg, discover how mindfulness allows us to see our thoughts and feelings as they really are, freeing us from old ways of thinking.
