I’ve seen this Native American parable before, but I think it bears repeating, so here it goes:
A grandfather is talking with his grandson and he says there are two wolves inside of us which are always at war with each other.
One of them is a good wolf which represents things like kindness, bravery and love. The other is a bad wolf, which represents things like greed, hatred and fear.
The grandson stops and thinks about it for a second then he looks up at his grandfather and says, “Grandfather, which one wins?”
The grandfather quietly replies, “The one you feed.”
We can use this parable in our daily life by which story we feed our souls, especially when life gets challenging and we feel like we are alone. We can become depressed and angry for the circumstances we find ourselves in or we can feed ourselves and the situation with love, kindness and forgiveness and move beyond the hurt.
Just like the parable suggests,
it’s all in the wolf that you choose to feed.
It is that simple dear friends. Come on, hold my hand. Let’s feed the good wolf together and make this world a better place for us all!

A classic parable, worth repeating (As Yvonne also states) as many times as possible. Maybe someday we will remember the lesson?
I’m honored Ray. Thank you
I love this. I love this parable. In my own journey, somehow I transformed the other one too…bringing the healed aspects of it with me into the new. I needed to remember that today. Thank you. ❤🙏
The sad thing is that children are fed by others for so long. We all need wise grandfathers in our lives.
I heartily agree Dan! 🙂
This has been one of my favorite quotes of all time! Thank you for sharing it!
I like this quote too! It doesn’t surprise me that you do as well!
I love this parable too.
It is lovely, isn’t it?
I’ve never heard this parable before. Beautiful.
I’m so glad I introduced you to the parable! I saw it long ago and thought I probably shouldn’t repeat it, but if it was a first for you, then it was worth it! ♥
