...or something

I created this group for this sort of thing, and I have been, yet again, a naughty girl and haven't posted in the thing I created. So since I made this for all alternative spiritual paths, I felt this appropriate.

NATIVE AMERICAN WISDOM

An elder Cherokee Native American was teaching his grandchildren about life. He said to them, "A fight is going on inside me. It is a terrible fight and it is between two wolves.

One wolf represents fear, anger, hatred, envy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority, and ego.

The other stands for joy, peace, love, hope, sharing, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, friendship, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion, and faith.

This same fight is going on inside you, and inside every other person, too."

They thought about it for a minute, and then one child asked his grand-father, "Which wolf will win?"

The Old Cherokee simply replied, "The one you feed."
