I am one of those people who does not pass along a lot of forwards. I get quite a few, and I am more than happy to read them. I will probably not pass most along. This one was one that I couldn't resist though. I couldn't resist because it made me think, and I think in the long run, it will also make me a better person.
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 is Evil - It is anger, envy, jealousy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority, and ego.
"The other 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."
I am not a person who walks around enraged, but there are definitely times when I get annoyed and probably feed that rougher side of myself. This little forward is helping me keep things a little more in perspective when I feel like popping off. :)
