One evening, an elderly Cherokee brave told his grandson about a battle that goes on inside people.
He said, “my son, 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.
The other is good. 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 that you feed.” (Cherokee Proverb)
Question: Why are there two wolves? They are both wolves? Are they my inner predators?
Answer: Yes because each of them strives, quite intently, for their goal. They are opposite and equal in strength. Only their direction is different from each other. Therefore, it is impossible to say which of these forces is dominant.
Question: Are we mostly feeding the evil wolf?
Question: How do I switch to feeding the good wolf?
Answer: You need to realize that the evil wolf you are feeding is so that he will eat you later. While the good wolf is the one who will guard you faithfully, always!
