Native Wisdom:One evening an elderly Cherokee brave told his grandson about a battle that goes on inside all 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 wise old Cherokee simply replied,
“The one that you feed.”
I simply love this parable because one of the greatest gifts we’ve been given is the one of free will. The freedom to choose any direction we want! I coach a lot about choice. Where do you want to go from here? If you don’t like how you feel make a different choice… What’s another way of looking at your situation?
So…. which wolf do you want to feed today?
