Points to Ponder

Two wolves.

One evening an old Cherokee told his grandson about a battle that goes on inside people.He said, 'My son, the battle is between two 'wolves' inside us all.One is Evil. - It is anger, envy, jealousy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority, and ego. The other is Good. - It is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion and faith.' The grandson thought about it for a minute and then asked his grandfather: 'Which wolf wins?'The old Cherokee simply replied,
"The one you feed"

Wow! That is food for thought! Loved it, Autumn. Gonna tell my hubby when I get home, he loves these beautiful tories, specially when they have this truth behind them.

Kisses from Nydia.

What a true saying. Would you mind if I copied it to my blog? It strikes me that the Native Americans were very wise.
