Today, a Native American parable about choice and consequence. A man tells his grandson about two wolves struggling inside him. One is the wolf of peace, love and kindness, the other the wolf of fear, greed and hatred. “Which one will win?” asks the boy. “Whichever one I feed,” is the reply.

I love that the wolf isn’t just the bad guy.

Lone wolf. Hungry wolf. Peter and the Wolf. Wolf in sheep’s clothing. Don’t wolf your food. Don’t cry wolf. Keep the wolf from the door. Thrown to the wolves.

Wolf sure gets a bad rap in western culture.
