Two wolves

Posted in mindset

One evening, an elderly Cherokee chief 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 wise Cherokee chief simply replied,
“the one that you feed”
