Two Wolves

>> Tuesday, February 1, 2011

One evening an old Cherokee 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 God --- It is joy, peace, 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 old Cherokee simply replied, "The one you feed."

An old Cherokee saying; life explained !
