Two Wolves – Via

Many of you have heard the “Tale of Two Wolves” before, but it is one worth hearing again from time to time. In the tale we learn of a Cherokee grandfather who is teaching his grandson an important life lesson, one that we should all take to heart. Although it has been told many ways, here is the version I have heard the most.

One evening an old Cherokee Indian 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.’

Which one will you feed?
