A Parable For the Season

“A fight is going on inside me," said an old man to his son. "It is a terrible fight between two wolves. One wolf 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. The same fight is going on inside you."
 
The son thought about it for a minute and then asked, "Which wolf will win?"
 
The old man replied simply, "The one you feed.”


— Wendy Mass, Jeremy Fink and the Meaning of Life

 

So please feed the wolf that is full of faith, joy, peace, love, humility, generosity and kindness and the world will be a better place.
