Two Wolves -- A Cherokee Tale

From the Minnesota MKP Center.

A Cherokee Grandfather, teaching Tribal ways and philosophies on life to his grandson, spoke:

A fight is going on inside me. It is a terrible fight between two wolves.

One wolf is evil. He is anger, envy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false-pride, superiority and ego.

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

Looking straight into his grandson's eyes, the Old man continues:

This same fight is going on inside you and every person in the world.

His grandson thinking about this phenomenon for a moment, asks his wise old grandfather:

Which wolf will win?

The Cherokee grandfather replies:

The one you feed.


So I would ask you, which one will you feed? It's a choice.

I'm out.
Old-faithful Wolf
