The Battle Rages


A battle goes on inside every person. It is a battle between the two wolves living inside.

One is called EVIL - it harbors anger, envy, jealousy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority and ego.

The other is named GOOD - reflecting joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion and faith.

Which one will win the battle? The one that we feed.

- thought taken from old Indian proverb

Many years ago I heard a Black preacher make a similar comment.

“In each of us there lives a white dog and a black dog. Which one will you let win?”

Mervi,
I've heard it preached the black and white dogs too.

Tina,
