There is a story that tells of two dogs that are in constant struggle with one another -- fighting for supremacy.
One dog is good and the other, evil.
The good dog represents the best parts of all of us. It has respect for one's self and the potential to create good. It's the part that nurtures us and helps us find strength when all the world seems to be against us.
The other dog represents everything in a person that produces anger, jealousy, envy, self-doubt, and fear. It is a creature of self-loathing and blames others for its pain.
Which dog will win the battle, you may ask?
“The dog that wins is the one that you feed the most.”
My friend Randy introduced me to this story many years ago and it has stuck with me to this day. Randy is the type of friend that everyone should have but hardly anyone does. In this book you'll find some of his photographs. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do.
Thanks for everything Randy!
PS. The story is part of David Mack's amazing work. He writes graphic novels that will blow your mind.
