One evening,

in the shifting light of the campfire,

an elder Cherokee told

a beloved grandchild

the legend of the

Two Wolves Within

– a fable of the

the internal and a continuous

battle

that occurs

within

each man and woman.

The grandparent said,
“My child, the battle is between two “wolves” inside us all.

One is Evil.

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

One is Good.

“It is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility,
kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity,
truth, compassion
and
faith.”

The attentive and precocious grandchild
thought about what was told
–  and, then asked their grandparent:

Which wolf wins?”

The wise grandparent,
a respected and honored elder Cherokee,
simply replied:

“The one you feed.”
