Feeding The Wolf

This was one of the most powerful messages i ever heard and i plan to live by it..

FEEDING THE WOLF

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, truth,
serenity, humility, kindness, empathy, benevolence, generosity, 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."

Thanks for posting the story - it is a great reminder of the internal struggles we all face and how choosing an attitude will only benefit us. I have asked myself a few times in the past days, ok...which wolf are you feeding?? You are the best - thanks for sharing
