A grandfather is talking with his grandchild and he says that there are two wolves inside each of us, which are always at war with each other.

One of them is a good wolf which represents things like kindness, bravery and love. The other is a bad wolf, which represents things like greed, hatred and fear.

The grandchild stops and thinks about it for a second then asks, “Grandfather, which one wins?”

The grandfather quietly replies, “The one you feed”.


I find this a useful parable in our everyday life because we are often caught in a situation where we want two things…..and as life would have it, one is “good” and the other is “not so good”. And reminder, we can’t have both.

I am most definitely not a fan of suppression and denial – I don’t think it ever works – but in my life, I have cultivated the opposite (the Two Wolves parable) and it had worked 🙂 I think it’s simp,y because our energy goes where our mind is, and where our minds go, our bodies go too.


Stop feeding the one that you want to remove from your life.


Remember to feed the one you want to keep. Grow it with your mental energy and gratitude, and love will follow.

Yes, it applies to relationships too ❤
