Subject: 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 minute and then asked his grandfather: "Which wolf wins?" The old Cherokee simply replied, "The one you feed."
Note from Lucy: I sometimes wonder which wolf we feed. Could it be a little bit of both? I hope I am feeding the good wolf much more than I feed the bad one. We need to be more concious of the things we do. Remember that the things that we do feed either the good wolf or the bad wolf. Thanks Richard Sutton for the story.
