I like the idea that in the fight between good and bad we all have inside us, the winner is which one we feed. How simple is that? What do you pay attention to? Which one do you nurture and pet and let sit on your lap? Which one do you give treats to?
Obviously I am talking abstractly. But the decision about which way to respond to an event or situation in life is often determined quickly, and quick decisions usually will follow what you are most practiced in; meanness or kindness, defensiveness or openness, love or hate, anger or understanding.
What dog do you feed?
