An old Grandfather, whose granddaughter came to him with anger and hate towards a classmate who teased and made fun of her, told her a story of the battle within.
“Let me tell you a story. I too, at times, have felt a great hate for those that have taken so much, with no sorrow for what they do. But hate wears you down, and does not hurt your enemy. It is like taking poison and wishing your enemy would die. I have struggled with these feelings many times." 🌿
He continued, "It is as if there are two wolves inside me; one is good and does no harm. It lives in harmony, it is joy, peace, hope and love.
“But the other wolf, ah! It is full of anger. The littlest thing will set it off, it is anger, jealousy, regret, greed, resentment and lies. .
It fights everyone, all the time, for no reason. It cannot think because the anger and hate are so great. It is hard to live with these two wolves inside me, for both of them try to dominant my spirit." 🌿
The granddaughter looked intently into her Grandfather's eyes and asked, "Which one wins, Grandfather?" 🌿
The Grandfather said, "The one I feed." Another Day, Another Experience. Wishing you a beautiful happy Friday! #thoughtoftheday #youwelcome #positivefeels
