Two Wolves






In case you are slowly going blind thru no fault of your own & cannot read the poem above like myself, here are the words.


TWO WOLVES



An elder Cherokee Native American was
teaching his grandchildren about his life.


He said to them;

"A fight is going on inside me....
it is a terrible fight
and it is between two wolves.

One wolf represents fear, anger, envy,
sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity,
guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies,
false pride, superiority, and EGO.

The other wolf stands for joy, peace, love,
hope, sharing, serenity, humility,
kindness, benevolence, friendship,
empathy, generosity, truth, compassion, and FAITH.

This same fight is going on inside you, and inside every other person, too."


They thought about it for a minute and then one child asked his grandfather,

"Which wolf will win?"


The old Cherokee simply replied;

"The one you feed."



Now, I want you all to know that I am working very hard lately to feed the better choice of wolf that fights with the other inside me right now. I can feel all the care, concern, warm thoughts & real prayers out there with regard to the health issues I am having. Thanks so VERY much to you all! I am truly, really blessed! ~Blessed Be!~
