Two Wolves

Post by Linda on June 8th 2009, 7:22 pm

Indian Tale told to a Grandson by his Grandfather...

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."

I don't know if this story has been posted yet, but I came across it again today, and thought I would pass it along, just in case it hadn't.

Thanks Linda

I love this Indian Tale, i heard it a while back on a movie i had watched.

All emotions/ egos feed off one another When we get angry and argue with someone all we do is let that anger feed, the bad wolf grins and snickers, and gets a kick out of watching us hurt each other.

when we learn to feed the good wolf inside each of us, we create a higher influence for all humanity. When we give love to someone, they will in turn give love back and to others.

What wolf will you feed?

Many Blessings
