Ancient Cherokee Wisdom – The Two Wolves
One evening many moons ago, a wise old Cherokee Grandfather was teaching his grandson abut life.
“A fight is going on inside me,” he said to the boy.
“It is a terrible fight and it is between two wolves.”
“One wolf is evil and ugly: He is anger, envy, war, greed, self-pity, sorrow, regret, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority, selfishness and arrogance.”
“The other wolf is beautiful and good: He is friendly, joyful, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, justice, fairness, empathy, generosity, true, compassion, gratitude, and deep VISION.”
“This same fight is going on inside you, and inside every other human as well.”
The grandson was very quiet for a few minutes, deep in thought over what his grandfather had just said.
Finally he spoke and asked, “Grandfather, which wolf will win?”
The elder Cherokee replied, “The wolf that you feed.”
The teaching of the Two wolves has everything to do with Stewardship. And I would like to share something that came to mind as I was reviewing the conversations we’ve recently been having about Stewardship.
The LAW of STEWARDSHIP is:
The greater stewardship you give to anything, the more of that thing you get
The more attention you give to something, the more you focus on it, the more of IT you will get! And here is the rub – We are all stewards whether we know it or not. The question that we must ask ourselves is, “Stewards of WHAT?”
We can choose to steward – anger, envy, war, greed, self-pity, sorrow, regret, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority, selfishness and arrogance.
Or we can choose to steward – peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, justice, fairness, empathy, generosity, true, compassion, gratitude and joy.
If you don’t like the results that you are currently getting, here’s an invitation for you to take a good hard look at what you are choosing to steward and if need be, choose to focus of the things that will help you get what you really want in life.
