Native American Wisdom
An old Cherokee is teaching his grandson about life.
"A fight is going on inside me," he said to the boy.
"It is a terrible fight, and it is between two wolves.
One is evil, - he is anger, envy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance,self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority, 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, then asked his grandfather, "Which wolf will win?"
The old Cherokee simply replied,"The one you feed."
