The wolf I feed

Posted by Alex Krainer on February 23, 2014

A Cherokee tribal chief was telling his grandson about the battle he was waging within himself. He said, “it’s between two wolves… one wolf is an evil wolf full of envy, sorrow, greed, guilt, self-pity, resentment, lies, false pride, superiority and ego. The other is the good wolf of joy, love, hope, serenity, empathy, truth, generosity, compassion, and faith.

The boy asked, “which wolf wins?”

The old Cherokee replied, “the one I feed.”

This story was told by Bill Moyers in his speech at the National Conference for Media Reform in Minneapolis on 7th June, 2008.
