What Are You Really Hungry For?

Who knew that last week's Monday Morning Stretch would cause such a reaction and stir-up such an interesting dialogue?  Thank you for all the positive comments and stimulating questions. Seems that we're far from alone here in The Den when it comes to a desire to tap into and operate from an authentic and awakened place.  Many of you asked how exactly I lost weight by "getting happy."  Well, one thing I know for sure is there is no formula you can copy because it's an truly an individual answer but here's one thing that occurred to me this week that might help.
 
Most of you will remember the Native American fable about the two wolves inside each of us:
One evening by the campfire an old Cherokee told his grandson about a battle that goes on inside people.  The old man said:  "My son, the battle is between two "wolves" inside us all.  One is Evil. It is anger, envy, jealousy, sorrow, regret, 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 thought about it for a minute and then asked his grandfather:  "Which wolf wins?"  The old Cherokee simply replied:  "The one you feed."
 
We have many "hungers," our physical hunger for actual nourishment and food being just one of them. We also hunger for significance, love, freedom, actualization, peace, understanding, and unrestrained joy ... just to name a few.
 
When I began to distinguish between those hungers and feed them accordingly, I began to realize that much of the food I was consuming was a poor attempt at filling empty spaces that had nothing to do with my physical need for nourishment.  But as I have spent more time separating, identifying, acknowledging, and observing those other spaces and experimenting with what makes me truly happy in those areas as well as taking bold, courageous, and massive action in that direction ... I've found it almost effortless to stop eating when I've actually satisfied my physical hunger ... no matter how much I love the taste or what is left on my plate. 
 
No diet.  No plan.  No rules.  Just feeding the right wolf with the right stuff.
