An Old Wise Tale...

I may have published this on here a while back, but today it feels very relevant and I wanted to share it again.

"Two Wolves"
An old Cherokee was teaching his grandchildren about life. He said, "A battle is raging inside me - it is a terrible right between two wolves. One wolf represents fear, anger, envy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority, and ego. The other stands for joy, peace, love, hope, sharing, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, friendship, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion, and faith." The old man looked at the children with a firm stare. "This same fight is going on inside you, and inside every other person, too." They thought about it for a minute, and then one child asked his grandfather, "Which wolf will win?" The old Cherokee replied; "The one you feed."
