The One You Feed

A boy and his grandfather are hanging out. The boy says to his grandfather, How is it you never seem to get upset? Don’t you ever feel angry?

His grandfather replies, “A fight is going on inside me… it is a terrible fight between two dogs.

One dog represents fear, anger, envy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, hatefulness, and lies.

The other stands for joy, peace, love, hope, humbleness, kindness, friendship, generosity, faith, and truth.

This same fight is going on inside of you, and inside every other person, too.”

The boy thought about it for a moment, and then asked his grandfather,

“Which dog will win?”

The grandfather replied…

“The one you feed.”
