Q: The Plague

Welcomed  PAX to a stunning winter quarters in the Woodshed Pacific Garage. Upon reminding all he is not a professional, Plague defined resentment for the PAX. Resentment is often a prison of your mind’s own design. Since these winter quarters were artistically designed, the workout today was dubbed “Your Mind’s Own Design”

Circle of Trust:

  • The Plague shared the Cherokee proverb about two wolves:

One evening, an elderly Cherokee brave 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, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority, and ego.

The other is good. It is joy, peace love, hope serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion, and faith.”

The grandson though about it for a minute and then asked his grandfather, “which wolf wins?”

The old Cherokee simply replied, “the one that you feed.”

  • Daily reminder to feed the good wolf – this is done in several ways but Plague highlighted the value of other HIMs and the community of F3
    • When we allow our community members to keep us in check and hold us accountable, we can identify when we’re feeding the bad wolf
    • Sometimes the reason we’re unhappy is because we continue to feed the good wolf.
    • Both wolves live inside us at all times, but it’s our choice each day which one we feed.
  • Coffeteria will be held at Starbucks following the beatdown. Meet there for fellowship and pontification
