Two Wolves - A Cherokee Legend


An old Cherokee is teaching his grandson about 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 is evil - he is anger, envy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority, and ego." He continued, "The other is good - he is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion, and faith. The same fight is going on inside you - and inside every other person, too."
The grandson thought about it for a minute and then asked his grandfather, "Which wolf will win?"
The old Cherokee simply replied, "The one you feed."*

Sometimes when the battle is going on a little help would be nice. Help without words, without judgement or attachment. Reiki is a perfect helper because your Reiki practitioner doesn't have to know the details of the struggle or if you don't want to talk about it - the practitioner doesn't even have to know that there is a struggle. You have to ask Reiki for help and it will by feeding the good wolf in your soul.
