Two Wolves

 

 

A cherokee elder was teaching his children about life. He said to them, “A terrible fight is going on inside me. It is a fight between two wolves. One is the wolf of joy, love, hope, kindness and compassion. The other is the wolf of fear, anger, cynicism, indifference and greed. The same fight is going on inside of you and every other person too.” The children thought about it for a moment, and then one child asked, “Which wolf will win?” The elder replied, “Whichever one you feed.”

I don’t really have much else to say today. This fully represents exactly what I am thinking about. Feed the wolf inside you that is fully of joy, love, hope, kindness and compassion. That is the wolf that is the hungriest. The other wolf will take exactly what he can get. He will steal for it, kill for it, trick people for it. Your heart knows what is true. So choose.
