Which wolf Wins

One evening an old man 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. Its 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".

This valuable piece reminds me about an inscription I saw in a temple in Indonesia. "The things that happen with you are your desires of your mind. Good or bad depends what you think, what your mind thinks. Your mental power is the storngest power that god has gifted you. The choice is yours only."
