Two Dogs Fighting

One winter’s evening while gathered round a blazing campfire an Old Sioux chief told his grandson about the inner

struggle that goes on inside people.

“You see,” said the old man, “this inner struggle is like two wolves fighting each other. One is  full of anger, jealousy, sorrow, self-pity, resentment and fear .”

“The other one,” he continued, poking the fire with a stick so that the fire crackled, sending the flames clawing at the night sky, “is full of joy, love, peace, kindness and compassion.”

For a few minutes his grandson pondered his grandfather’s words and then asked, “So which wolf wins, grandfather?”

“Well,” said the wise old chief, his lined face breaking into a wry smile, “The one you feed.”
