Story Of The Two Wolves

I love nature. There is so much in nature to be fascinated by and wolves are a prime example.  I feel they often get misrepresented as blood thirsty, wild and ruthless creatures but the truth is they are far from that.

I always appreciate wisdom shared via quotes, stories, poems or proverbs, so I really liked this story my cousin shared which is a Cherokee Story.  Its well known, but I only discovered it this year:-)

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-petty, 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.”
