Two wolves (Good & Evil within a single body)

25 Apr

Mom told this to me one weekend as a bedtime story when I was young. We discussed it through-out the following day. I share…

“There is a battle that goes on inside us all, the people; which is between two wolves … named: Evil and Good.

The Evil is: anger, envy,  jealousy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity,  guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride,  superiority, and ego.

while the Good is: It is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility,  kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth,  compassion and faith.”

I kept thinking about  it for a minute and then asked: “Which wolf wins?”

Maa replied, ” The one you feed!”

Still wondering and thinking, whom to feed and whom not. Some time, greed comes up and take over the good side, evil side forcing to fulfill the greed at any cost. We all are feeding our evil by making wrong choice, today we are in a world which is more materialistic and to stay up in the community we do all the wrong deeds to satisfy our wrong deeds.

We know when we are feeding our evil, we cannot be in a place to do good to attain peace in our life and spend it peacefully. Status consciousness drives us crazy and we are happy to do things without knowing the fact that either they are good or bad.

Satisfaction and peace can come to us only, when we are satisfy and peaceful from inside and that comes only to us when we are feeding only the good. How come we feed the good wolf? Answer to that question is simple and we all are aware with that.

It’s now up to a person to decide what they really wanted to do with their life and to which wolf they are eager to feed in the end. You can make your life good and bad, that’s in your hand and no one in this whole world can be held responsible for your life which is been chosen by you.

    I think you are absolutely correct. Something that we have forgotten is that no one is essentially just good or just evil. 🙂

    Good and Evil or Light and Dark
    It is us who chooses one for ourselves
