Feeding the Wolf

There is an old story that says a lot about today:

An old Cherokee chief told his grandson about a battle that goes on inside people: the battle is between two wolves inside us all. One is Evil. It is anger, envy, jealousy…. arrogance, self-pity….resentment…. lies, false pride, superiority and ego. The other is Good. It is joy, peace, love…humility, kindness…….empathy….truth, compassion and faith.  The grandson thought for a minute and then asked, which one wins? The old Cherokee replied, the one you feed.

The wolf can be a person, a group, a city, a country or the whole world. In these difficult times, let’s examine where we are going and where will it lead.  More importantly, let’s determine what can be done if we believe change must happen. Or, if some changes cannot be allowed to happen. Giving in or staying silent is a choice. Taking a stand or speaking up is also a choice. Deciding which wolf to feed is the most important choice.
