- One is bad: he is anger, envy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, vanity, superiority and egocentrism.
- The other is good: there is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, goodness, kindness, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion and faith. The same fight takes place in yourself and inside everyone.
The grandson thought for a minute, then asked his grandfather:
- Quel will the wolf win?
The old Cherokee replied simply:
- The one you feed. We are good and bad. We would like to be good, but it is not in the nature of man. And we have to live with our two facets.
- Mais ce qui est important pour nous, c’est alors d’être plus bon que mauvais, que la balance penche du bon côté.
This tale, very easy to memorize, can remind us daily that the balance will tip the side we have privileged. He teaches us that a day of sadness is a quarter of an hour of joy that must be remembered and cultivated!
