The Parable of Two Wolves
One evening an old Cherokee told his grandson
about a battle that goes on inside all people.
He said, â€œMy son, the battle is between two
wolves that dwell inside each and everyone of us.
â€œOne 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.â€
The grandson thought about it for
a minute, and then asked his grandfather:
â€œWhich wolf will win ?â€
The old Cherokee simply replied:
â€œThe one you feed.â€
