I've thought long and hard about today's post and actually started a few different drafts, but in the end I thought this would be best.
There is a fight going on inside me and it has been for a little while now. I'm sure this is part of the 'growing' process, but it is none the easier. I do not want to feed the wrong wolf, but it seems difficult to coax the other wolf into eating what is on offer.
An elder Cherokee chief took his grandchildren into the forest and sat them down and said to them, “A fight is going on inside me. This is a terrible fight and it is a fight between two wolves. One wolf is the wolf of fear, anger, arrogance and greed. The other wolf is the wolf of courage, kindness, humility and love.” The children were very quiet and listening to their grandfather with both their ears. He then said to them, “This same fight between the two wolves that is going on inside of me is going on inside of you, and inside every person.” They thought about it for a minute and then one child asked the chief, “Grandfather, which wolf will win the fight?” He said quietly, “The one you feed.”
Which one will win..."the one you feed" replied the grandfather, but I believe it is the one with the biggest heart.
Do you ever feed the wolves or have you learned to subdue them?
