Which Wolf Will You Feed?
A Grandfather's Wisdom

The following short, deeply meaningful story comes from the Institute of HeartMath (IHM): The primary mission of IHM is to facilitate people in finding the balance between mind and heart in life's decisions. Have a great day and new year ahead!

An American Indian grandfather was talking to his beloved grandson about his feelings:

Grandfather: I have two wolves fighting in my heart.
One wolf is the vengeful, angry, violent one.
The other wolf is the loving, compassionate one.

Grandson: Which wolf will win the fight in your heart, Grandfather?

Grandfather: The one that I feed.

We all have anger and hatred in us. It is but a matter of degree. We also all have love, beauty, and goodness in us. It is but a matter of degree. We have choice in which of these we choose to feed and develop in ourselves.
