Sunday Conference with Diana...
November 10, 2013
Did you do all your preparations for Diwali? Clean house/businesses; declutter; buy a new outfit; review your journal with last year’s goals and set your intentions for this upcoming year?
Puja: Ring the bells, chimes and singing bowls to call the gods of our prayers;
The smoke from the incense lifts the prayers up to heaven;
Flower = gratitude;
Candle = your intention.
“A Cherokee elder was instructing his grandson about a battle that goes on inside every human being. He said to the young man,”The battle is between two wolves. One wolf is slothful, cowardly, vain, arrogant, and full of self-pity, sorry, regret, envy and anger. The other wolf is diligent, courageous, humble, benevolent, and full of compassion, joy, empathy, and faith.” Then there was silence.
The grandson thought about the two wolves for a moment and then asked his grandfather, “Which wolf wins?”
The Cherokee elder replied, “The one you feed.”
