Wolves, and a wise old Indian

'This may be the best I have ever heard it explained!'

The Two Wolves

One evening an old Cherokee told his grandson about a battle that goes on
inside people. He said, 'My son, 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 minut and then asked his grandfather:
'Which wolf wins?'

The old Cherokee simply replied, 'The one you feed.'
