Two Wolves – Unknown Author

Two Wolves

A Cherokee Legend

An old Cherokee is teaching his grandson about life. “A fight is going on inside me,” he said to the boy.

“It is a terrible fight and it is between two wolves. One is evil – he is anger, envy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority, and ego.” He continued, “The other is good – he is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion, and faith. The same fight is going on inside you – and inside every other person, too.”

The grandson thought about it for a minute and then asked his grandfather, “Which wolf will win?”

The old Cherokee simply replied, “The one you feed.”

I came across this story in something I was reading and it is a Native Indian story.  Truly, beautiful, simple, powerful and  frankly it is a statement that I feel stands firm – It can’t be debated what you feed wins.     Our thoughts create our life.   Our life is a thought a way.  What you think is your choice, not an automatic response.  I am the master of myself – am I not? Am I not?

Acknowledgement to whom ever shared this story, it is still applicable today.  Truly, beautiful.

Thank you for stopping by to read.
