Which Wolf Will You Feed?
A Grandfather's Wisdom
An American Indian grandfather was talking to his beloved grandson about his feelings:
|Grandfather:||I have two wolves fighting in my heart.
One wolf is the vengeful, angry, violent one.
The other wolf is the loving, compassionate one.
Grandson: Which wolf will win the fight in your heart, Grandfather?
Grandfather: The one that I feed.
We all have anger and hatred in us. It is but a matter of degree. We also all have love, beauty, and goodness in us. It is but a matter of degree. We have choice in which of these we choose to feed and develop in ourselves.
The above short, deeply meaningful story comes from the Institute of HeartMath (IHM): http://www.heartmath.org. The primary mission of IHM is to facilitate people in finding the balance between mind and heart in life's decisions. Read an excellent HeartMath essay titled, "A Change of Heart Changes Everything." And have a great day!
