Indian Wisdom – Two Wolves

02 Aug

wolvesAn Elder Cherokee was teaching his grandchildren. He said to them:

“A fight is going on inside me. It is a terrible fight. It is between two wolves: One wolf represents fear, anger, envy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority, and ego.”

“The other stands for: joy, peace, love, hope, sharing, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, friendship, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion, and faith.”

This same fight is going on inside you, and inside every other person, too. They thought about it for a minute, then one child asked his grandfather: “Which wolf will win?”

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