Words of Wisdom
One evening an old Cherokee Indian told his grandson about a battle that was going on inside himself.
He said, “My boy, the fight is between two wolves.”
That certainly got the boy’s attention.
“One is evil,” the old man continued. “Anger, envy, sorrow, regret,greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies,false pride, superiority and ego.”
“What of the other, grandfather?” the boy asked.
“The other is good,” he said. “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, “Do we all have such wolves fighting inside us,grandfather?”
“Yes,” the wise old man said.
“Then, which wolf wins the fight?”
The old Cherokee simply replied, “The one you feed.”
