Which wolf do you feed?

I came across this Cherokee legend about wolves just recently.

It seems so apt for the current climate.

Steps for Peace
An old man told his grandson “My son, there is a battle between two wolves inside us all. One is Evil. It is anger, jealousy, greed, resentment, inferiority, lies and ego. 
The other is Good. It is joy, peace, love, hope humility, kindness, empathy and truth.”
The boy thought about it and asked “Grandfather, which wolf wins?”
The old man replied quietly “The one you feed.”

  1. I love wolves. When I was a child I had a close encounter with a wolf in the mountains in Bosnia. He just stood and looked at me. If he wanted he could have easily hurt me. They are special animals,indeed.
