Are the TWO WOLVES in YOU in CONTROL?

During my lunch time I got an opportunity to read some pages of  Joel Osteen’s book. I read a chapter which discussed on Self Discipline.  It had an interesting parable “Two Wolves – A Cherokee Parable”.  This parable dealt  about the complex human mind and life in a simple manner.

Let me post that parable for all of you here:

An old Cherokee chief was teaching his grandson about life…

“A fight is going on inside me,” he said to the boy.
“It is a terrible fight and it is between two wolves.

“One is evil – he is anger, envy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority, self-doubt, and ego.

“The other is good – he is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion, and faith.

“This same fight is going on inside you – and inside every other person, too.”

The grandson thought about it for a minute and then asked his grandfather,
“Which wolf will win?”

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

************************************

We cannot claim ourself as bad or good person. Each of us is a combination of both.  However, it is necessary to check our own behavior constantly.
