“A fight is going on inside me,” he told the young boy, “a fight between two wolves.
One is evil, full of anger, sorrow, regret, greed, self-pity and false pride.
The other is good, full of joy, peace, love, humility, kindness and faith.”
“This same fight is going on inside of you, grandson…and inside of every other person on the face of this earth.”
The grandson ponders this for a moment and then asks, “Grandfather, which wolf will win?”
The old man smiled and simply said, “The one you feed.”
Even if you are not a Yogi, how are you showing up in your life? Are you looking over your shoulder in regret or anger? Have you become greedy in your relationships? Or are you overflowing with loving practices and kindness? Faith that even if you can't see you will keep planting the seeds with the knowing that a harvest is on its way.
Perhaps this tale reminds us that we are all in this world together and that at any given moment the choice is up to us....we can feed the wolf that is full of sorrow, regret and greed, or we can feed the wolf that is full of joy, peace, and love.
