The wolf that you feed…

One evening an old Cherokee Indian told his grandson

about a battle that goes on inside people.

He said, ”My child, 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 good. It is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity,

humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity,

truth, compassion and faith.”

The grandson thought about it for a minute and then asked his grandfather:

” And which wolf wins, Grandfather?

” The old Cherokee simply replied:  ” The one that you feed.
