good or evil wolf?

Recently a friend posted the following story on the Pictage Forums. It is attributed to Cherokee tradition, but has roots in many cultures. It offers an interesting perspective...

One day an old man and his grandson were sharing some time together and the old man told the boy a story about two wolves that wage a battle inside of us all.

He said, “One wolf is evil. It is anger, jealousy, false pride, greed, regret, self-pity, resentment, inferiority, lies and ego.

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

The boy thought about the story and asked his Grandfather, "Which wolf wins the battle?"
The grandfather smiled and said, "The one you feed."

When you choose which wolf YOU will feed keep in mind it will reflect in all you do, every step of the way.
