I thought this parable a fitting piece of wisdom to start the New Year with.....

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 Wolf is Evil - It is anger, envy, jealousy, sorrow, regret, greed,arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority and ego.

The other Wolf 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."
