My Wolves are hungry

The Two Wolves

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've started The Artists Way, I'm not sure I am ready for it at the moment, brain seems scrambled

Who Am I? I am a searcher What do I wish formyself? a clear path

The Artist's Way is amazing. I wasn't sure I was ready when I started but it ended up being one of the best decision I ever made.

Hi Judipatootie,

Pretty top image. Great wolf story! So true about feeding the wrong one. I wish for you to have a clear path to wherever your good wolf wants to go!

Ms. Patootie, that is exactly the first thing I thought of when I saw today's wishcasting prompt! Great minds are meeting on another plane again!

As Judi wishes for herself, I wish for her as well.

(and I think one of your wolves is pretty well fed my dear...)

Oh I know this, isn't it from "Women who run with the wolves"? Whatever: it's a great story!

So as you wish for yourself, Judi, so I wish for you also.

Hullo Love...I've read that Cherokee story so many times...mostly to keep myself in check :) Glad to see I'm not the only one ♥
For you and your clear path (and getting to meet you!) I am excited!

As Judi wishes for herself, so too do I wish for Judi :)
