THE GESTALT PRAYER
do my thing, and you do your thing.
I am not in this world to live up to your
and you are not in this world to live up to mine.

or go without"
One evening an old
Cherokee told his grandson about a battle that goes on inside people. He
said, "My son, the battle is between two "wolves" inside us all. One is
Evil. It is anger, envy, jealousy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance,
self-pity, guilt, worry, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride,
superiority, and ego. The other is Good. It is joy, peace, love, hope,
serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, humor, generosity,
truth, compassion and faith.
The grandson thought about it for a minute and then asked his
grandfather:"Which wolf wins?"
The old Cherokee simply replied, "The one you feed."
The Key To
"Settle for disorder in lesser things
for the sake of order in greater things;
Therefore, be content
to be discontent in many things."
Look to This Day
Look to this day, for it is life, the very
life of life.
In its brief course lie all the realities
and verities of existence.
The bliss of growth, the splendor of
action, the glory of power.
And yesterday is but a dream, and tomorrow
is only a vision.
But today - well lived - makes every
a dream of happiness,
and every tomorrow a vision of hope.
Look well, therefore, to this day.
- Sanskrit proverb
