My sister sent me this and I wanted to share

An elderly Cherokee Native American was teaching his grandchildren about life…

He said to them, “A fight is going on inside me, it is a terrible fight and it is between two wolves.

One wolf is evil — he is fear, anger, envy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, competition, superiority, and ego.

The other is good—he is joy, peace, love, hope, sharing, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, friendship, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion and faith.

This same fight is going on inside you, and inside every other person, too.”

They thought about it for a minute and then one child asked his grandfather, “Which wolf will win?”

The old Cherokee simply replied: “The one you feed”.

 Una mañana un viejo Cherokee le contó a su nieto acerca de una batalla

 que ocurre en el interior de las personas. El dijo, “Hijo mío, la batalla es entre dos lobos dentro

 de todos nosotros. “Uno es Malvado – Es ira, envidia, celos, tristeza, pesar, avaricia,

arrogancia, autocompasión, culpa, resentimiento, inferioridad, mentiras,

 falso orgullo, superioridad y ego.. “El otro es Bueno – Es alegría, paz, amor, esperanza,

 serenidad, humildad, bondad, benevolencia, empatía, generosidad, verdad, compasión y FE”

 El nieto lo meditó por un minuto y luego preguntó a su abuelo: ¿Qué lobo gana?

 El viejo Cherokee respondió,  “Aquél al que tú alimentes.”
