Something so right

You can listen to a song a hundred times and never really hear it.  Then a random fluke of fortune changes everything.  On the 101st time it finds its way through and it resonates. 

There is an inspired serendipity to my life. A theme that underlies all that I have done, every decision I have made and every path I have traveled.  On Halloween a year ago, that instinct came alive and my wandering found a home.

News is absolutely spectacular, but you are missing the point of, "Something so right."

Yeah...always liked this song...everyone, or almost everyone has built walls. It's natural to do so. There's a lot of pain our there. Here's a good adjunct to the song.

The Wolves Inside You

An elder Native American was teaching his grandchildren about life. He said to them, "A fight is going on inside me.. it is a terrible fight and it is
between two wolves. One wolf represents fear, anger, envy, sorrow, regret,greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false
pride, superiority, and ego.

The other stands for joy, peace, love, hope, sharing, serenity,
humility, kindness, benevolence, friendship, empathy, generosity, truth,compassion, and faith."

"This same fight is going on inside you, and inside every other
person, too", he added.

The Grandchildren thought about it for a minute and then one child
asked his grandfather, "Which wolf will win?"

The old Cherokee simply replied... "The one you feed."
