Two Wolves-A story to change Your Life

May 24, 2010

An old Cherokee chief is teaching his grandson about  life:

“A fight is going on inside me,” he said to the boy.  “It is a terrible fight and its between two wolves.  One is evil-he is angry, 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.”
