Two Wolves

An old Cherokee is teaching his grandson about life.

“A fight is going on within me,” he said to the boy.  It’s a terrible fight and it is between two wolves.

One wolf is evil – he in anger, envy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority and ego.

The other is good – he is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion and faith

“The same fight is going inside you – and inside every other person.”

The grandson thought for a moment and then asked: “Which wolf will win?”

The old Cherokee replied, “The one you feed.”
