Canadian Border Outfitters

Mark & Lynn Beaumont from Canadian Border Outfitters sent this to me. I liked it, so I thought I would share with all of you

Wolf pack at breakfast

Two Wolves

One evening an old Ojibwe 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 Ojibwe simply replied, ‘The one you feed.”

There surely is in human nature an inherent propensity to extract all the good out of all the evil. - Benjamin Haydon
