The Cherokee Legend of the Two Wolves

The Cherokee Legend of the Two Wolves

I came across this wonderful parable, and realized that it really emphasizes that the importance of watching our thoughts. As we know, “Energy flows where attention goes.” Whatever you have your attention one, you’re telling the subconscious mind you want more of. What are you choosing to let into your life?

‘One evening, an old Cherokee was telling 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 this battle?”

The old grandfather simply replied, “The one you feed.”‘
