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.

FIRST:

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

BUT:

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 ❤
