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!
