Two Wolves

Cherokee wisdom that is easily Jedi wisdom...

Two Wolves: a Cherokee "Lesson"
One evening, an old Cherokee told his grandson about a
battle that goes on inside people. He said, "My son,
the battle between two 'wolves' is 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 man simply replied: "The one you feed."
