Words Of The Day : An Old Cherokee Tale of Two Wolves

One evening, an old Cherokee Indian was speaking to his grandson:

"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, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority, and ego. The other is good -- he is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion, and faith. This same fight is going on inside you, and inside every other person, too."

The grandson thought about it for a long minute, and then asked his grandfather, "Which wolf will win?"

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


This is a story I've been keeping in my mind and heart for all this time. And I always spread this story as a short note through facebook to my friends, and through writings too. So simple, and so true... right guys? Every each of us have two wolves live inside us. The Good and Evil, which will decide what you think about and influence your behavior.

We have a choice whether to feed the Good or the Evil wolf. Feed the good one and you'll have a good behaviour, good lifestyle. To be short, everything positive :-) . And feed the Evil wolf and you'll have it the other way around. Some of us always have fed the wrong wolf. As a result, they seem to be controlled by the evil wolf and thus lose in the battle, and lost themselves, Knowing where to go, what to do.

To My fellow readers, which wolf are you feeding? Hope that you know which to feed. The story is obvious. Don't get yourself lost. Feed the right one! All the best for life :-)

P/S : Be Good, Have Love. Be Evil, Have Hatred
