One evening sitting around the fire, the grandson of an old and wise Cherokee chief asked his grandfather, "Why is life so unhappy Grandad?" The wise old chief thought for a moment, and then asked, "Can you hear the wolves that are howling in the distance son?"
"Yes I can Grandad," replied the boy.
"Have you noticed how some of the wolves are angry and aggressive and some are gentle and friendly?"
"Yes I have Grandad," replied the boy, "I like the baby wolf with the stripes who follows me when I go hunting."
"Well, we have two wolves inside us also," replied his grandfather. "One leads us to misery and unhappiness. It sows the seeds of anger, envy, jealousy, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, pride and ego. The other leads us to happiness. It sows the seeds of joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion and faith."
The grandson was quiet for a while and then asked: "Which wolf wins Grandad?"
The old chief simply replied, "The one you feed." - Author AnonUse these Instant Stress-Busters to stop feeding your stress & start feeding your health, happiness & prosperity
