Two Wolves Two Choices

Category: Positive ThinkingPatricia @ 6:55 pm

One evening an old Cherokee told his grandson about a battle that goes on inside all people. He said, “the battle is between two ‘Wolves’ inside us all.

One Wolf is Negative. It is anger, envy, jealousy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority, and ego.

The other Wolf is Positive. 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 simply replied, “The one you feed.”

We always have a choice about what we focus upon. Every moment of the day, we are making choices about what emotions we are experiencing…what we are feeding. When we choose to nourish ourselves and others with positive thinking and positive actions, we all win.
