The one you feed

July 12, 2016

“An old Cherokee is teaching his grandson about life.

‘A battle is going on inside all of us,’ he said to the boy.

‘It is a terrible fight and it’s between two wolves.

One is evil: anger, envy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority and ego.

The other is good: joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion and faith.

This 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 found this on Facebook. What a pocket of silence it was before the next round of noise. Thank you, Erin Cooper-Gay for posting the story as told by video.
