A GHASTLY MEETING .. by chryssalis A GHASTLY MEETING .. by chryssalis

Don't look for the enemy in the dark woods..The evil big bad wolf is inside us..
Our worse enemy is ourselves!And it is so scary when a certain situation makes us realize that..

An American Indian tale from Andrew :iconmtnboy64:,which expresses perfectly the meaning of this work:

An old Cherokee grand father 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, "The one you feed."

I dedicate this work to these wonderful friends,who have honored me with their amazing gifts in the year 2011!With random order!:)
Thank you all for your friendship and precious support!:love:

-I can run.
I'll find you.
-I can hide.
I'm inside you.
-I can forget.
I'll remind you.
-I can erase.
It is permanent.
-I can deny it.
I'll reveal the truth.
-I'll wait it out.
It'll last forever.
-I can't run.
You are trapped.

wow!! just wow!! amazing composition and image and what a beautiful way of presenting the concept of our enemy is inside is, it's so true, hardly anyone is able to realize, if they did, the world would probably be a better place to live!:D

Oh well, I've heard that the mistake in life is that we keep trying to find who we are, but we forget that we actually create ourselves with our thoughts, so you can be whoever you want to be, whatever you choose to think you are, that's how you'll see yourself and how will others see you. :D I can definitely say that I've created myself and I'm in constant creation...we are energy.. according to physic rules :D
