Two Wolves

11.06.2011

One evening an old Cherokee told his grandson about a battle that goes on inside people.

He said;  ”My son, the battle is between two wolves inside all of us.”

One is Evil!  It is anger, envy, jealousy, sorrow, regret, greed, 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 Cherokeke simply replied;  ”The one you feed.”
