“To change your mood or mental state—change your vibration.”
“One may change mental vibrations by deliberately fixing the Attention upon a more desirable state.

“Imagine a SMILE and you will smile too.”
An old Grandfather said to his grandson, who came to him with anger at a friend who had done him an injustice…
“Let me tell you a story. I too, at times, have felt great hate for those who have taken so much, with no sorrow for what they do. But hate wears you down, and does not hurt your enemy. It’s like taking poison and wishing your enemy would die.”
“I have struggled with these feelings many times.
It is as if there are two wolves inside me; one is good and does no harm.
He lives in harmony with all around him and does not take offense when no offense was intended. He will unleash his exceptional fierceness only in defense, as is right to do so.
But…the other wolf… ah! The least thing will send him into a fit of temper. He fights everyone, all of the time, for unjust reason. He wrongs others because his anger, fear, and hate are so great.
It is destructive anger.
Sometimes it is hard to live with these two wolves inside me, for both of them try to dominate my spirit and actions.”
The boy looked intently into his Grandfather’s eyes and asked, “Which one wins, Grandfather?”
The Grandfather smiled and quietly said, “The one I feed.”
