As I hear the differing views of our World experience play out, I’m reminded of a very ancient Native American story that I recite often. it basically goes like so…
A young boy told his grandfather that he had repeatedly been visited by two Wolves in his dreams.
One Wolf was kind and gentle and gave him good advice, the other was scary and tried to take things from him and called him bad names.
“I want the kind Wolf to stay but the bad Wolf keeps coming too. How do I know which Wolf will stay and which Wolf will go?” asked the little boy.
His Grandfather pulled him onto his knee and said…
“The Wolf that stays is one you feed”
Which Wolf do you feed? The kind and loving one who is trying to help you grow, or the negative and cruel Wolf who only wants to make you feel unhappy?
Starve your cruel Wolf and let him go and feed your kind Wolf so he can stay as your companion.
