An Old Cherokee Tale of Two Wolves


I received an email today from a reader with an old tale.  I thought it was just too goo not to repost. It’s An Old Cherokee Tale of Two Wolves:

“One evening and old Cherokee Indian told his grandson about a battle that goes on inside people.  He said, ‘My son, the battle is between two ‘wolves’ inside each of us.  One is evil.  It is anger, enjy, jealosy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority and ego.

The other one is good. It is joy, love, peace, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion and faith.’

The grandson thought about it for a moment and then asked his grandfather, ‘Which one wins?’

The old Cherokee simply replied, ‘The one you feed!”

This is such a lovely story: so simple and yet so true!  Each and every one of us has these two wolves waiting inside of us. The evil wolf or the good wolf is fed each day by the choices we make with our thoughts. What you think about and dwell upon will appear in your life and influence your behavior.

We have a choice. Feed the good wolf and it will show up in our character, habits and behavior positively.  Or, feed the evil wolf and our whole world will turn negative: like poison this will slowly eat away at our soul.

You can have lack and want or you can have love and abundance. The crucial question is, “Which one are you feeding today?”
