The Wolves In Us

Rate this post

This is an old Cherokee saying and probably the best I’ve ever heard life explained….

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 God – 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.”
