Which Wolf are you feeding?

In our ACIM series, we have been talking a lot this week about the Voices in our heads. We each have two voices, the voice of the Ego and the Voice of the Holy Spirit or intuition. As I was writing about these two voices I was reminded of an old Cherokee story I have heard many times over the years:


An Old Cherokee told his grandson, “My son, there is battle between two wolves inside us all. One is Evil. It is Anger, Jealousy, Greed, Resentment, Inferiority, Lies and ego. The other is Good. It is Joy, Peace, Love, Hope, Humility, Kindness, Empathy and Truth.”

The Boy thought about this and asked, “Grandfather which wolf wins?”

The old man quietly replied, “The one you feed”
