Sunday's Serene Teen: The Two Wolves Inside Us

     An old Cherokee 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 quietly replied, "The one you feed."

This is the abridged version of the Cherokee legend.  To read an expanded version go to Edel O'Mahoney's Path of the Peaceful Warrior at

     My thanks to Stephen Matchett for sending this to me.
     May you choose wisely which wolf you feed.
     Love and Light surrounds you.
