"I feel as though two wolves are fighting in my heart. One of the wolves is angry, frustrated and disappointed; it yearns for revenge and retribution, considering the use of violence. The other wolf is full of love and compassion
Tell me, which one of the two wolves will win the fight?
The one that I feed".
One may be compelled to agree with such sentiments. However, it may be erroneous to starve the other wolf, for the two have their own roles to fulfil and will be necessary in various situations.
One ought not make the mistake of erecting a box around themselves, in which they become imprisoned within their limits. The might and strength of the angry wolf will be as much essential in some circumstances as will be the necessity of the delicate touch of the loving and compassionate wolf.
Sometimes, a fight does not take place in order to determine a winner; the victory is the actual fight itself. The necessary equilibrium of opposing forces in harmony - Yin and Yang. Thus, it may be wise to feed both wolves in sufficient measures.
