Life has been wonderfully busy, especially building a startup company, so I haven’t written recently. It seems fitting to share a a Cherokee legend that a friend just taught me about:

One day an old Cherokee is teaching his grandson about life. “A fight is going on inside me,” he said to the boy. “The same fight is going on inside you. It is a terrible fight and it is between two wolves inside us all.

One is Evil – it is fear, anger, envy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority, and ego.”

“The other is Good – it is joy, peace, love, faith, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, and compassion.

The grandson thought about it for a minute and then asked his grandfather, “Which wolf will win?”

The old Cherokee simply replied, “The one you feed.”
