Feeding the wolf

(from psychologytoday.com)



 


There is an old American Indian proverb about a Cherokee chief who is teaching his grandson about life, and he says:


-  "There is a fight going on inside me.  It is a terrible fight and it is between 2 wolves."  


-  "One wolf is evil --- he is self-pity, envy, regret, resentment, anger, self-indulgence, ego."


 -  "The other wolf is good --- he is love, compassion, hope, kindness, peace, humility, generosity."


-  The old chief went on to say, "This same fight is going on inside you.  And it is going on inside every other person as well."


-  The grandson seemed deep in thought for several minutes, and then he asked: "Grandfather, which wolf will win?"


-  The old Cherokee chief replied: "The one you feed."

 


Vehicles with Highest Resale Value

Here are some good and interesting information to know for the future...


Kelley Blue Book and Edmunds.com have published their 2011 list of vehicles with the best resale values after 3-5  years of ownership. Some of those listed were weird as heck to me (i.e. Subaru's and Honda's), but most were generally unattractive.  I can say I did liked a couple and maybe will consider them in the future when I'm in the market for a new car.

Life Path Number: 3

Posted on July 10, 2011 at 2:58 AM Comments comments (0)

(from astrology-numerology.com)


Hey!  It's my Birthday and according to the above site, my life path number is:




"3(3,12/3, 21,/3, 30/3)


The Life Path 3indicates that you entered this planewith a strong sense of creativity and with wonderful communicationskills. Achievement for you most likely comes through engaging youringenious expression. A truly gifted 3 possesses the most exceptionalinnovative skills, normally in the verbal realm, writing, speaking,acting, or similar endeavors. Here we are apt to find the entertainersof the world, bright, effervescent, sparkling people with veryoptimistic attitudes. The bright side of this path stresses harmony,beauty and pleasures; of sharing your inventive talents with the world.Capturing your capability in creative self-expression is the highestlevel of attainment for this life path. Life is generally lived tothe fullest, often withoutmuch worry about tomorrow. You are not very good at handling moneybecause of a general lack of concern about it. You spend it when youhave it and don't when you don't.


The 3 loves connecting withpeople. The characteristicsof the 3 are warmth and friendliness, a good conversationalist, socialand open. A good talker both from the standpoint of being a delight tolisten to, but even more importantly, one who has the ability to listento others. Accordingly, the life path 3 produces individuals who arealways a welcome addition to any social situation and know how to makeothers feel at home. The approach to life tends to be exceedinglypositive. Your disposition is almost surely sunny and openhearted. Ahappy and often inspired person, you are constantly seeking and needingthe stimuli of similar people.


There is a remote side toyour 3 Life Path, as well.This comes as a surprise to the native and to those who think they arewell acquainted. The 3 is actually a very sensitive soul. When hurt,you can easily retreat to a shell of morose silence for extendedperiods. Nonetheless, the 3 eventually copes with all of the manysetbacks that occur in life and readily bounces back for more. It isusually easy for you to deal with problems because you can freely admitthe existence of problems without letting them get you down for toolong. Because of your own sensitivity to hurt, you have a caringdisposition and seem to be very conscious of other people's feelingsand emotions.


In romance, the 3 is a veryardent and loyal lover.Affairs that don't go well can leave scares that seem to linger.Emotional experiences of all sorts tend to deeply touch the 3 and thedrama may take some time to play out. Regrettably, the givingdisposition of the 3 often attracts demanding partners. As with most oflife's issues for the 3 Life Path, balance in relationships is illusive.


Your big test with a 3 LifePath is controlling yourhighs and lows. You won't survive very well in any routine environmentor when you are placed under dominating management. Slow thinking andoverly contemplative people tend to frustrate you, and you don'tfunction too well with this type whether you are working for, with, orunder them. Your exuberant nature can take you far, especially if youare ever able to focus your energies and talents.


For the few living on thenegative side of this LifePath, a 3 may be so delighted with the joy of living that the lifebecomes frivolous and superficial. You may scatter your abilities andexpress little sense of purpose. The 3 can be an enigma, for noapparent reason you may become moody and tend to retreat. Escapisttendencies are not uncommon with the 3 life path, and you find it veryhard to settle into one place or one position. Guard against beingcritical of others, impatient, intolerant, or overly optimistic."

 


Are You Air, Earth, Water or Fire?

(from beliefnet.com)


You scored 53, on a scale of 0 to 110. Here's how to interpret your score:


51 - 70


Air: You're smart, witty, and process-oriented--but may be a little abstract and spacy at times. You're drawn to ideas and love to learn. Just make sure to leave room for feelings and sensations




"The Air Person

 

The Air person thinks before he feels, and sometimes thinks instead of feeling. He isrational and often quite clever. Some Air people are quiet, studious, and bookish, but Air is the element of speech, so Air people can also be entertaining, spinning colorfulstories and being great wits who delight in wordplay. Their gift with words may lead them to writing or communications as a career, and particularly glib Air people areexcellent marketers. The Air person is often proud of his ability to think thingsthrough, and may even have disdain for those who rely on feeling or intuition.

 

Air people can be quite abstract, seeing things in broad strokes, seeing "the big picture."As such, they are excellent theorists, philosophers, economists, and politicians-people who must see life in its systems and structures, rather than in individuals anddetails. Sometimes they can be radical thinkers, because they don't necessarily value experience over theory, nor do they worry about how things have always been done.Tradition means little to the free-thinking Air individual.

 

Air people also excel at doing several things at once, or keeping several ideas intheir head at once-"keeping many balls in the air." There is an exception: some Airfolks are too easily distracted. Multiple tasks scatter them, like seeds in the wind. At-tention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (AD/HD) is an Air problem. Such Air peopleare at their best when using their powers of thought to concentrate intensely on justone task at a time.

 

The stereotype of the absent-minded professor is pure Air. He is brilliant, evendazzling, but utterly impractical. He is the genius with untied shoes who misses appointments.He is the "science geek" whose brilliance doesn't seem to apply to thereal world. The Air person has charm, but often lacks social graces (which are basedon following rules to which he pays little attention).

 

Since commitment doesn't come naturally to Air (picture tying down the wind),and since they aren't generally in touch with their feelings, Air people can have difficultyin relationships.

 

They are generally poor housekeepers, having a sort of scattered style, "as if awindstorm hit the place," as some Air person's mother once said. If they do keep atidy home, they do so in a systematized way. They can become very disconnectedfrom people and the normal concerns of day-to-day life, and be poorer for it.However, the Air person can choose to balance his airy nature with relatednessand practicality and enrich his life."
