Which Wolf Will You Feed?

Merry Monday fellow passengers!  All Aboard!!!  Kick the music, enjoy the ride!

As you board the train I give you your daily business card.  It simply reads:


One evening a grand-father sat talking to his grandson about a battle that goes on inside people.  He said, “My son, the battle is between two wolves inside us all.   “One is Evil – It is anger, envy, jealousy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority, and ego.  “The other is Good – It is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion and faith.”

The grandson thought about it for a minute and then asked his grandfather: “Which wolf wins?”

The Grand-father simply replied, “The one you feed.”

Passengers, as you roll down the tracks this week…remember, feed the right wolf…

All Aboard!  The LifeTrain!

    Thanks Mr. Conductor for this week’s business card! Praying I can continuously feed the ‘right’ wolf knowing the more I feed it, the easier it will become to let it reign over my life…it’ll just become second nature!

    God bless you, as you travel down the tracks!

    Your faithful passenger,

    Which wolf? Until today I never thought about the characteristics – self-pity and guilt as “feeding the wolf” but chalked them up to the spirit (little “s’) of the day. I saw them as being defeatist and lacking in faith. Because of your lesson today, I will actively look at the “bad” as ignoring God in my daily living and begin to feed the good wolf by turning over my sense of “failures” to Him who is able to perform wonders.

    Hmmmm.. I think that every wolf has its place. We learn from every wolf. We all have a wolf in there that is angry about something, afraid, anxious, sorry, or regretful.

    I think that we need to sit down with each wolf, deal with it, talk with it, and make peace with it. Each wolf came into our lives to teach us something that will propel us to the next level. We don’t need to push the wolves away because ultimately they will resurface in ugly ways. Wolves are simply our wounds and imperfections. We grow from these imperfections, but if they consume us they defeat us.

    I’m thankful for all of my wolves.. tragedies, disappointments, and failures.. that came into my life and became my friends. I embraced them. I share the bad experiences with others to help them to become stronger.

    The key is making peace with that wolf, not allowing it to comsume you. Feed it with self-compassion.

    Chuckie, get out of my pan of chocolate bread pudding. It’s bad enough that you ate all of the barbequed chicken! I’m tired of you and these ‘wolves’ raiding my fridge.
