Wolf Parable

 

An elder Apache was teaching his grandchildren about 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,

  • competition, 

  • superiority,

  • ego.

 

The other represents;
 

  • joy, 

  • peace, 

  • love, 

  • hope, 

  • sharing, 

  • serenity, 

  • humility,

  • kindness, 

  • friendship, 

  • empathy, 

  • generosity, 

  • truth, 

  • compassion,

  • 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 Grandpa simply replied, 

 

"The one you feed".
