The Story of Two Wolves
There was once an Old Cherokee teaching his grandson a lesson about life. He tells his grandson that there is a battle that goes on within all people. He said, “My son, the battle is between two wolves. One is Evil. It is anger, envy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, lies, false pride, and ego. The other is Good. It is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion, and faith.” The grandson thought for a moment and then asked, Which wolf wins?”
The old Cherokee simply replied, “If you feed them right they both win.”
“You see, if I only choose to feed the white wolf, the black one will be hiding around every corner waiting for me to become distracted or weak and jump to get the attention he craves. He will always be angry and always fighting the white wolf. But if I acknowledge him he is happy and the white wolf is happy and we all win.
“For the black wolf has many qualities: tenacity, courage, fearlessness, strong will and great strategic thinking that I have need of at times and that the white wolf lacks.
“But the white wolf has compassion, caring, strength and the ability to recognize what is in the best interests of all.
“You see son, the white wolf needs the black wolf at his side. To feed only one would starve the other and they will soon become uncontrollable.
“To feed and care for both means they will serve you well and do nothing that is not a part of something greater, something good, something of life.
“Feed them both and there will be no more internal struggle for your attention, and when there is no battle inside you can listen to the voices of deeper knowing that will guide you in choosing what is right in every circumstance.
“Peace, my son, is the Cherokee mission in life. A man or woman who has peace inside has everything. A man or woman who is pulled apart by the war inside him or her has nothing.
“How you choose to interact with the opposing forces within you will determine your life.
“Starve one or the other or guide them both.”
