The Two Wolves

two wolves story

Once upon a time, there was a grandfather who was having a conversation with his grandson. The grandfather said to the boy, “There are two wolves fighting inside of me. One wolf is filled with anger, envy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority, and ego. The other wolf is filled with joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion, and faith.”

The boy thought about this for a moment and then asked his grandfather, “Which wolf will win?”

The grandfather replied, “The one you feed.”
