A Tale of Two Wolves

The Two Wolves

A Cherokee elder was teaching his grandchildren about life.

He said to them, "A fight is going on inside me… it is a terrible fight between two wolves.

One wolf represents fear, anger, envy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, hatefulness, and lies.

The other stands for joy, peace, love, hope, humbleness, kindness, friendship, generosity, faith, and truth.

This same fight is going on inside of you, and inside every other person, too."

The children thought about it for a minute. Then one child asked his grandfather,

"Which wolf will win?"

The Cherokee elder replied…

"The one you feed."

I hear today about this tale and it fascinates me. A found the story written here.
The person, who told me about it said, that you not only can feed the "good" wold, but STARVE the other one, until it is GONE.....

I think, that is something I want to work on:)
