The Two Wolves

A Cherokee Elder Was Teaching His GrandChildren About Life
He Said To Them
A Fight Is Going On Inside Me
It Is A Terrible Fight And It Is Between Two Wolves

One Wolf Represents Fear
Anger
Envy
Sorrow
Regret
Greed
Arrogance
Self-Pity
Guilt
Resentment
Inferiority
Lies
False Pride
Superiority
And Ego

The Other Stands For Joy
Peace
Love
Hope
Sharing
Serenity
Humility
Kindness
Benevolence
Friendship
Empathy
Generosity
Truth
Compassion
And Faith

This Same Fight Is Going On Inside You And Inside Every Other Person Too

They Thought About It For A Minute
Then One Child Asked His GrandFather
Which Wolf Will Win?

The Old Cherokee Replied
The One You Feed
