In a time long ago, in a native tribe, a wise old grandfather sat by the fire, watching his young grandson play. The boy seemed troubled, his emotions swinging between anger and sadness.
Sensing an opportunity to teach a lesson, the grandfather said, “My child, inside each of us, there is a battle going on, much like a battle between two wolves.”
The boy looked up with curiosity. “Two wolves, grandfather?”
The old man nodded. “Yes, two wolves. One wolf is evil and represents anger, jealousy, greed, arrogance, and lies. The other wolf is good and stands for love, joy, peace, kindness, humility, and truth.”
The young boy pondered this for a moment, then asked, “Which wolf will win, grandfather?”
The wise grandfather leaned in, looked into the boy’s eyes, and said, “The one you feed.”
