He told him about a great and important battle that goes on inside of all people ...
“My grandson, the fight is between two ‘wolves’ that live inside of us all.
One wolf is called Unhappiness; he is fear, anger, bitterness, jealousy, hatred, desire, greed, arrogance, self pity and resentment.
And the other is known as Happiness; he is joy, love, hope, peace, contentment, compassion, honesty and wisdom.”
“But grandfather, which wolf wins ?”
To this the wise old man simply replied …
“Whichever one you feed.”
