Two Wolves: A Cherokee Legend

Have you ever noticed that Truth is simple? It doesn’t take up a lot of room and really doesn’t require a lot of words. And so it is with this beautiful, powerful story of two wolves. It clearly illustrates the power we have in every moment to make our lives whatever we want it to be.  All we have to do is choose! 


                                                         Two Wolves

A young Cherokee boy saw his grandfather seated by himself. He walked up to him and said, “Grandfather what are you doing?”

The grandfather said, “I am thinking about a fierce battle that is raging within me.”

The grandson’s eyes opened wide with concern and he said, “What is this battle about?”

The grandfather replied, “The battle is between two wolves.

One is filled with anger, fear and self-pity.

The other is filled with love, understanding and compassion.”

The grandson thought about this for a moment and then asked, “Which wolf wins?”

The old Cherokee grandfather replied, “The one I feed.”


Which of the two wolves will you feed?

As you go through your days, weeks, and months, ask yourself which of your beliefs you’re feeding. Are they aligned with what you want for your life? Be mindful of the universal truth that where you look, you will go.  This means that whatever you put your attention on, becomes your Reality, your future.

Your power, and I really mean POWER, lies in your free will to choose which thoughts and emotions you’re going to invest your energy.  “When you make a choice, you change the future.”  – Dr. Deepak Chopra
