The inner wolf

A wise old Cherokee man teaches life to his grand-son:

“A struggle takes place within me, he tells the boy. A terrible fight between two wolves. One is bad: he is anger, envy, pain, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, conceit, superiority and ego. The other one is good: he is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity,  humility, kindness, compassion, empathy, generosity, truth and faith.
The same struggle takes place within you and within every one.”

The grand son thinks about it for a minute, then asks his grand father : “Which wolf will win ?”

The old Cherokee wise man simply answers: “The one you feed.”
