Two wolves

 

Value- Right Conduct

Sub value- Discrimination between right and wrong

cherokee wisdom

One evening an old Cherokee told his grandson about a battle that goes on inside people.  He said, “My son, The battle is between two ‘wolves’ inside us all.

One is Evil.  It is anger, envy, jealousy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment,Inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority and ego.

The other is Good.   It is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion and faith.”

The grandson thought about it for a minute and then asked his grandfather,

“Which wolf wins?”

The old Cherokee simply replied, “The one you feed.”

Learning

The qualities we encourage and practise are the ones which will win. We have a choice either to cultivate good or bad habits. It is important to teach children from young age the right values so that they become good human being and a better citizen of the world.
