One evening an old Cherokee told his grandson about a battle that goes on inside people. He said, “My beloved grandson, the battle inside every person is between two wolves.”
“One wolf is Evil. It is anger, envy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, pessimism and negativity.
The other wolf is Good. It is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, compassion, optimism and faith.”
The grandson thought for a minute and then asked his grandfather, “Which wolf wins?”
The old Cherokee gently grasped the boy’s shoulder, looked deeply into his eyes, and replied, “The one who wins is the one you feed.”
I was sent this story in an email from my dad. I thought it would be nice to share. There are definitely some great words of wisdom there–and a lot of truth. Which wolf are you feeding??
