The Wolves Within

Black-Wolf-Vs-White-Volf

One day a grandfather sits down to tells his grandson about life.

“A fight is going on inside me,” he says, “It is a terrible fight and it is between two wolves. One is Evil – he is anger, envy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority, and ego.”

He continues, “The other is Good – he is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion, and faith. The same fight is going on inside you – and inside every other person, too.”

The grandson thought about it for a minute and then asks his grandfather, “Which wolf will win?”

The grandfather simply replies, “The one you feed.”
