Another Thought Provoking Story
An old man is teaching his grandson about life. “A fight is going on inside me,” he said to the boy. “It is a terrible fight and it is between two wolves – a good wolf and a bad wolf.
One wolf is negative – he is angry, envy, sorrowful, regretful, greedy, arrogant, self-pitiful, guilty and resentful. He tells lies all the time and has false pride.
He continued, “The other is positive – he is encouraging, peaceful, loving, hopeful, sincere, kindness and humble. He is full of empathy, generous and compassionate.
The grandfather explained that “the same fight is going on inside you – and inside every other person, too.”
The boy thought about it for a minute and then asked his grandfather, “Which wolf will win?”
The old farmer simply replied, “The one you feed the most.”
