The Two Wolves
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 us all.
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 Cherokee simply replied,
‘The one you feed .’
I am obviously not the originator of this story, but I absolutely love it! I’d like to share it with you occasionally to remind you of the internal struggle we must ALL address. As the economy goes down further and the doom and gloom continues to be spread through the media, which wolf are you feeding?
It’s your choice – I’d like to remind you of a quote from Albert Einstein, “There are two ways to live our lives; one way is as though nothing is a miracle;The other is as though everything is a miracle.”
Amidst the tides and seasons of change, don’t forget who you are deep inside!
