Inspirations : The Two Wolves

By: Cherokee Wisdom

 ONE EVENING, AN OLD CHEROKEE TOLD HIS GRANDSON ABOUT A DEBATE THAT GOES ON INSIDE PEOPLE.  HE SAID, “MY SON, THE BATTLE IS BETWEEN 2 ‘WOLVES’ INSIDE US ALL.

 ONE IS EVIL.  IT IS ANGER, ENVY, JEOLOUSY, 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.”
