    Subject: Two "Wolves"

    An old Cherokee is 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
    and ego."

    "The other wolf 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, grandson, and inside every other person, too."

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

    The old Cherokee replied, simply, "The one you feed."

    Later the old Cherokee revealed to his grandson; one was truly a wolf, while the one was really a sheep who stood for joy, peace, love, hope,
    serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity,
    truth, compassion and faith.

    These two wolfs will always war against other until that day the end of the battle occurs. BTW, the battle is already won.

    Native American mystic fables that mirror Oriental Ying/Yang concepts? Sounds like New Age mumbo-jumbo to me. [​IMG]

    True story, right forum.

    So you believe in this silly myth?

    These two wolfs will always war against other until that day the end of the battle occurs. BTW, the battle is already won.

    Make up your twisted mind.. is there a battle going on, or ain't there?

    Precepts probably meant, "These two wolves will always 'battle' each other until that day the end of the battle occurs. BTW, the 'WAR' is already won."
    God forbid, May it never be that I appear to take Precepts side! :D However, although we're still in the battle, the WAR is won. Hallelujah! What a Savior!!!
