The Battle Between Two Wolves

Posted: September 1, 2008 in icedlemontea RAW, Life

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.`

-Dedicated to Yahaya, may he rest in peace

Ps- Which wolf are you feeding?
