Which Thoughts Do You Feed?
One evening, an old Cherokee told his grandson about a conflict that goes on inside people. He said, “My son, the battle is between two wolves within is all. One is evil. It is anger, envy, jealousy, sorrow, regret, worry, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority and ego. The other one is Good. It is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, wisdom, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth compassion and faith.”
The grandson thought this for a minute and then asked his grandfather, “Which wolf wins? The old Cherokee simply replied, “The one you feed.” (p. 49)
How are you going to make sure the “good wolf” wins in your life?
