This is the best I have ever heard it explained!!
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.”
This is such deep wisdom put so simply and beautifully. Very inspirational. We all have parts of good, bad and the ugly within us, but it depends solely on us which attitudes we wish should dominate our moods, or outlook. “WE” choose to brood and drown in self pity, instead of looking at the brighter side of the situation we are in and finding a way out of it with a positive attitude. It is all a matter of choices. “Our” choices. And we have control over those choices. Aptly said, be careful which wolf you feel. I really liked the above tiny story. Naush
