Do you know those emails that are forwarded to you and countless others that clog up your box and are marked for deletion without ever being read? The ones where you see the three letters FWD, and you think Ugh, not another one? I know them well too, as none of the eight email accounts that I use are immune. However, every once in a while, something catches my attention in the subject line and I open and read what is inside. More seldom than that, I read something that I like.
One one of these occasions, I actually wrote down what the email contained. I came across it recently and was again struck by how profound the message is and I want to share it with you. I wish I could credit who wrote this, but I cannot because I honestly do not know. This little dialogue will conclude my post, as there is truly nothing more that needs to be said.
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, inferiority, lies, and ego. The other is Good. It is joy, peace, love, hope, humility, kindness, empathy, and truth.”
The boy thought about it and asked, “Grandfather, which wolf wins?”
The old man quietly replied, “The one you feed.”
