One evening an old Cherokee chief was teaching his grandson about life:
“A terrible fight is going on inside me. The same fight is going on inside you, and inside every other person too. It is a fight between two wolves.
The first wolf speaks to me of Evil – anger, guilt, shame, envy, resentment, self-pity, dishonesty, self-doubt and ego.
The other wolf speaks to me of Good – joy, peace, love, serenity, self-confidence, courage, kindness, humility, generosity, truth ,compassion and faith.”
Wide-eyed, the young boy thought about this, then asked his grandfather:
“But which wolf will win?”
The old chief simply replied: “The one I feed”.
