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.”

  1. I would have enjoyed it more if the description of evil did not fit me like a T-shirt.I’ve probably done all of those “sins” in just the last month. Not having the worry of just how mean I could have been.I know that as sure as hell, I wouldn’t want to be around me on a regular basis.Never should have sent my anti-war ass to Vietnam. What my fellow demonstrators didn’t know was just what a hell we had created over there.
