Lesson


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, bitterness, hate, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, selfishness, superiority and ego.

The other is good...he is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, self-control, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, courage, mercy, compassion and faith.

This 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 would win.

The old Cherokee simply replied, "The one you feed."
