Tale of the Two Wolves

We all have two wolves in us – figuratively. And the battle of these two wolves is going on inside of us, every day. Until the day we breathe our last breath.

It is indeed a terrible fight. Tale of the two wolves is one of evil versus good. The black wolf, the evil one, he is anger, envy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority and ego.

The other is good. He is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, compassion and faith.

This is the everyday fight, on-going, everlasting, in all of us.

And the winner of this daily fight? The answer is the wolf you feed.
