Two Wolves –
The parable of two wolves is an old Cherokee Indian story.

An old Cherokee was teaching his young grandson one of life’s most important lessons.  He told the young boy the following parable:

“There is a fight going on inside each of us.  It is a terrible fight between two wolves,” he said.

“One wolf is evil.  He is anger, rage, envy, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, resentment, lies, false pride, superiority, and ego.”

“The second wolf is good.  He is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, empathy, truth, compassion, and faith.”

The grandson thought about this for a moment. Then he asked his grandfather,       “Which wolf will win this fight?”

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

Which are you feeding today?
