Cherokee Wisdom — Two Wolves
An old Cherokee chief was teaching his grandson about life...
"A fight is going on inside me," he said to the boy.
"It is a terrible fight and it is between two wolves."
"One is EVIL – he is anger, envy, sorrow, regret,
greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt,
resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride,
superiority, self-doubt, and ego."
"The other is GOOD – he is joy, peace, love,
hope serenity, humility, kindness,
benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion, and faith."
"This same fight is going on inside you –
and inside every other person, too."
The grandson thought about it for a minute and then asked his
grandfather, "Which wolf will win?"
The old chief simply replied, "The one you feed."
