I came across an old folk story the other day, which I wanted to share with you.
An old cherokee told his Grandson “my Son, there is a battle between two wolves inside us all. One is evil, it is anger, jealousy, greed, resentment, lies, ego and worry. The other is good. It is peace, joy, love, humility, kindness, empathy and truth”.
The Grandson thought about it a while and asked “Grandfather, which wolf wins the battle?”
The old man quietly replied “the one you feed”.
Whatever we hold in our minds will be what we are, will be what happens. If we let our minds be fuelled with worry, ego, lies, greed, anger or resentment then our lives will be the same. Yet, if we fuel and feed our minds with positivity, peace, humility, and the like, then our lives will become enriched with happiness, joy and kindness.
If we continue to believe as we have always believed, we will continue to act as we have always acted. And we will continue to get what we have always got.
If we want something different. If we want happiness, joy, peace and success, all we have to do is change our mind.
