Cherokee Story of Two Wolves – The Affirmation Spot for Wednesday February 20, 2008



wolves.jpg A friend of mine sent this story to me today. It is so insightful I had to share it. Thank you, Sharon!

One evening an old Cherokee told his grandson about a battle that goes on inside all people.┬áHe 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 you feed.”

Be peaceful Be positive!
