but now somewhat changed by Ronald Rohner is published.
Which Wolf Are You Feeding?
A grandfather was teaching his grandchildren about life. He said to them,
“A fight is going on inside me. It is a terrible fight between two wolves. One
wolf expresses fear, rejection, anger, and hatefulness. The other wolf
expresses love, hope, kindness, friendship, and warmth. These wolves are
always fighting with each other. My grandchildren, this same fight is going
on inside of you. And not just you, but inside every other person too.”
The children thought about it for a minute. Then one child asked
his grandfather, “Which wolf will win the fight?” The grandfather replied,
“THE ONE YOU FEED.”
