Two Wolves – A Cherokee Teaching


An old Cherokee is teaching his grandson about life. “A fight is going on inside me,” he said to the boy.

“It is a terrible fight and it is between two wolves. One is evil – he is anger, envy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority, and ego.” He continued, “The other is good – he is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion, and faith. The same fight is going on inside you – and inside every other person, too.”

The grandson thought about it for a minute and then asked his grandfather, “Which wolf will win?”

The old Cherokee simply replied, “The one you feed.”


This was something I got from the TV a few days ago and I was inspired to share it!

      1. I am an introvert Simon and I am very uncomfortable in such kind of places. It’s too noisy I can’t think and I hate it when I can’t think

  1. How totally coincidental! I did one of these, too, back in Jan, But I accidentally deleted mine! hahaha, it was called “Wolf of Love” and I used an image of my Charlie as the wolf, haha! He’s only a Cairn Terrier, but he thinks he’s a damn horse, lol!! Wow, that is twice you and I had similar ideas. Maybe you are my cosmic twin from outerspace? GMTA, always, you. ❤︎
