The Inner Battle

An old wise Cherokee teaches life to his little son.

A battle takes place inside of me, he said to the boy.
A terrible fight between two wolves.

One is evil: he is anger, envy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, 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 same battle takes place in yourself and within everyone.
The grand-son thought for a minute and then asked his grandfather:

What will the wolf will win?

The old Cherokee simply replied :

The one you feed.
