Which thoughts do you feed?

I am not sure of the source of this great lesson, but it sure is insightful…

 

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.”
