Day 36: Feeding Time


There is an old Cherokee legend about a grandfather teaching his grandson an important life lesson.

The grandfather explains to the young boy that we all have a battle going on inside of us.

He said,

“My son, the battle is between two ‘wolves’ that live 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 old Cherokee replied simply,

“The one you feed.” (Author Unknown)

Oh

how the battle is real
