~ An Old Cherokee Saying ~

An Old Cherokee Saying ~  This is probably one of the best analogies of life explained!

TWO WOLVES


One evening an old Cherokee told his grandson about a battle that goes on inside people.


He said, "My son, the battle in life is between two wolves that live inside us all.


"One is Evil: anger, envy, jealousy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority, and ego.


"The other is God: 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 old Cherokee replied,


"The one you feed."

  2. Hi dear Pat,
    Wow! That's so simple and really perfect. Thanks, cause I can always use a reminder. My wolf has been getting way too much to eat lately, I think! LIFE!! Sometimes it ain't easy.
    Hope you're out and about, looking at everything with those new eyes of yours!
    XOXO
