Two Wolves – A Cherokee Legend

Leave a comment

An old Cherokee is teaching his grandson about life. “A fight is going on inside me,” he said to the boy.

“It is a terrible fight and it is between two wolves. One is evil – he is anger, envy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority, and ego.”

He continued, “The other is good – he is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion, and faith. The same fight is going on inside you – and inside every other person, too.”

The grandson thought about it for a minute and then asked his grandfather, “Which wolf will win?”

The old Cherokee simply replied, “The one you feed.”

Said differently, everything comes down to a choice between fear and Love.  If you fear something happening more than you love something else happening, the stronger energy has the greater pull on your attention.  Heal the underlying issues that create the fear (or other negative emotions) and you will have an easier time focusing on that which you love and moving toward it.
