St. Paul said to Timothy, "fight the good fight". What does that mean? Over the years it has meant many things to me. Today, after a night of incredible dreams, I have a new understanding of the meaning.
What is coming through for me this morning, is that it’s the individual and the work we do to heal ourselves..to balance the dark and the light that lives within that will deliver us into the Golden Age.
To remember who we truly are…not divided, but one with ourselves and with one another.
The separation we see outside of ourselves begins inside, when we fear our basic needs are not being met...inhibiting us from seeing the interconnectedness of all things. If the individual understands that the enemy lives within and always will, then the awareness can bring with it the ability to balance both halves of our nature. The divine male (action) and female (intuition) energies we all have. Like the Cherokee story of the great fight between the white wolf and the black wolf. Then everything around us will begin to be in balance. Until that happens, until we stop seeing ourselves as separate from one another, the darkest hour is still yet to come.
I see people posting things and going against one another in the name of politics. I see people willing to harm another to protect their beliefs. I see so much division while people talk about being unified.
If each individual can learn to bring to balance the enemy within, we would not need government to make laws and rules because we would not allow ourselves to be controlled…to go against one another…or to find joy in the demise of another.
The balance would allow us to choose what feels right, without judgment of right or wrong. And we would not be able to be controlled by any outside force. That is true freedom.
That is what I was born on this planet to bring to light. We are all here to “Fight the good fight” for balance and harmony…as within, so without.
I am still working on myself to continue my own healing within. It’s a journey for all of us. We all have the "great work" to do.
Politics and government won’t save us. It’s an illusion they are masters at creating…both sides…divided. They only serve to distract us from our higher purpose. It is you and me and all others living on this planet that will deliver us one way or another depending on our choices day by day, hour by hour. What wolf will you choose to feed or will you feed both to keep them in balance?
Namaste my friends!
Below find the Cherokee story of the two wolves.
An old Cherokee is teaching his grandson about life: “A fight is going on inside me,” he said to the boy. ”It is a terrible fight and it is between two wolves. One is evil – he is anger, envy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority, and ego.” He continued, “The other is good – he is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion, and faith. The same fight is going on inside you – and inside every other person, too.” The grandson thought about it for a minute and then asked his grandfather: “Which wolf will win?”
The old Cherokee simply replied, “If you feed them right, they both win. You see, if I only choose to feed the white wolf, the black one will be hiding around every corner waiting for me to become distracted or weak and jump to get the attention he craves. He will always be angry and always fighting the white wolf. But if I acknowledge him, he is happy and the white wolf is happy and we all win. For the black wolf has many qualities – tenacity, courage, fearlessness, strong-willed and great strategic thinking – that I have needed at times and that the white wolf lacks. But the white wolf has compassion, caring, strength and the ability to recognize what is in the best interest of all.
“You see, son, the white wolf needs the black wolf at his side. To feed only one would starve the other and they will become uncontrollable. To feed and care for both means they will serve you well and do nothing that is not a part of something greater, something good, something of life. Feed them both and there will be no more internal struggle for your attention. And when there is no battle inside, you can listen to the voices of deeper knowing that will guide you in choosing what is right in every circumstance. Peace, my son, is the Cherokee mission in life. A man or a woman who has peace inside has everything. A man or a woman who is pulled apart by the war inside him or her has nothing. “How you choose to interact with the opposing forces within you will determine your life. Starve one or the other or guide them both.”
