I was reading the Little House series by Laura Wilder for the, well I can’t really remember. I have been reading these books since the 4th grade after one of my mother’s friends gave me those, back to the story, I was reading the first book and then just read about the wolves which her father was showing her and then remembered this story that will suit to the situation perfectly. Imagine Laura’s father showing her the wolves and saying..
There is a battle between two wolves inside each one of us goes on all the times.
First wolf is the Evil character wolf; it produces germs of anger, envy, sorrow, greed, arrogance, stress, lies and tension in our minds. Whereas, the second one is Good character wolf; it generates the energy for hope, peace, happiness, truth, generosity and ethics in our mind, heart and soul.
Laura asked, so who wins the battle? Father replied, the one which you feed more!
The story has a superb driving force motivating us to do our self audit. The question is that which wolf we feed daily and how much? If we surround ourselves in negative character people, do back biting, leg pulling, learning tricks to deceive people and talk pessimist events or ideas then definitely we are strengthening the Evil Wolf. On the contrary, if we spend our times with nice and positive people, read good books, focus on solutions, and assist people in resolving their problems then we are encouraging the Good Wolf to overcome the Evil one. In the long run, the Wolf represents our character because eventually our character gets molded either in to a Good Wolf or Evil Wolf.
