I have to agree that this may be the best I have ever heard it explained!
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, grief, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, fear, false pride, sloth, superiority… it has many names: satan, devil, or commonly called ego…
The other is Good.
It is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, sees the best in people with compassion and faith.
The grandson thought about it for a minute…. And then asked his grandfather: ‘Which wolf wins?’
