Master and Student Chronicles | Conversation 2 | Love vs Hate

Master: You look muddled! What thought have you let grapple your mind today?

Student: What is more powerful – love or hatred?

Master: Why do you ask?

Student: Both emotions are extremely divergent but both seem equally capable. Both are full of potential and extremely powerful.

Master: Have you heard of the story of fight between two wolves that thrive within us?

Student: No.

Master: We all have two wolves within us and they are in constant conflict. One is evil, always angry, revengeful, and in self-pity state. Other is good, always benevolent and compassionate. The two are constantly fighting.

Student: So which one wins?

Master: No one wins. The fight is eternal. But the one which dominates longer makes all the difference to your life.

Student: So which dominates?

Master: The one you feed more.

Student: So love and hate co-exist within us and the one we feed more will be more powerful.

Master: If the truth be told, indeed so.

Student: Hmm.. Master, would it be disrespectful if I call you by name?

Master: Respect is exhibited in words and actions, but is perceived at heart. Names are mere aliases. I will call you by name too, Vedant.

Vedant: Thank you Mr. Swamy. So how to only feed the wolf we want?

Mr Swamy: More on it, some other time!
