Two Wolves

Like a game of telephone . . . this came from Kirk Tuck’s blog, and this in turn came from Kim Critchfield’s Facebook page.  It was too good to not pass along.

One evening a Cherokee elder told his grandson about a battle that goes on inside people.

He said, “My son, the battle is between the two ‘wolves’ that live inside us all.

One is Unhappiness or Evil – It is anger, jealousy, fear, regret, greed, arrogance, sorrow, self-pity, resentment, inferiority, false pride, superiority, weakness and ego.

The other is Happiness or Good – It is joy, love, hope, serenity, benevolence, peace, empathy, kindness, generosity, truth, humility, faith, strength and compassion.”

The grandson thought about it for a while and then asked his grandfather, “Which wolf wins?”

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