Which one to feed?
The one who is fed the most will have the power. Sometimes I don’t know which one to feed. I like to think that my serene wolf is all powerful and wise. He keeps me balanced and centered, loving and compassionate. My angry wolf, full of hostility and frustration, creeps out from behind and seems to overtake serene wolf, biting and growling to win. It’s scary, but he must do that for his own peace of mind. Of course it’s obvious who gets fed the most, who has the most to gain; but angry wolf must be allowed scraps enough to gentle his anger and pain.

Battle of the wolves
Each person has two wolves to themselves. One wolf that is kind and compassionate and the other is of hostility and anger. We must feed one that we choose to follow but still giving small pieces of food here and there just to ease his conscious.

This great short story is about loving and accepting all parts and emotions of ourselves.

Did not resonate
I did not feel any connection to this story. Maybe I'm just not fathoming the concept? The only conflict I feel inside myself is neither wild nor feral. It's far more subtle and human.

I learned that, even though there’s a battle going on inside of us, its ultimately our choice, which wolf to feed. We are in charge of the wolves, but it never hurts to get another perspective into the picture, as they can see clearly, which wolf has been fed the most.

Battle within ourselves
I felt like this really shows that we can’t let one or the the other. Hate or love take over because if we do we lose certain feelings that help us be human and ourselves and it’s ok to have off days because we are human and that shows our humanity.

This is my first time using the story part of aura. This was an amazing story. It helped me to understand that anger and frustration are a necessary part of life as long as you don’t let it consume you. You must chose which wolf to feed and which wolf will be shown but you can not have one without the other.

Two wolves inside, one positive, one negative, battling. Equal power and strength, whichever one you feed the most is the one that will win.

I felt relaxed and momentarily peaceful by the end of the story.
I’d like to learn tips for feeding my compassionate wolf. I feel fear that my mind is too often- spent feeding my defensive, jealous and angry wolf.

The words
I learned that there are going to be times when they are really hard and you might make the wrong choices, but that doesn’t mean you have to give up. You can push forward and still be happy. Hating the way you act bad, can be even worse. Your hating the same kind. It would be no use for that.

Gaining control
I learned that I need to recognize and own my feelings in order to have better control over what I am projecting to others, and how I am projecting myself to others.. I need to except myself entirely, not just the pieces I pick & choose, but all aspects and all personality traits. I need to become familiar with the parts of me that may be negative because if I am to have control over them, I must first accept and learn to understand where they come from and what triggers them

It’s ok to have a good an a bad wolf. Parts of you that you are proud of and parts not so much. Tomorrow I am not going to feed my bad wolf while I take my ACT. I do not need the negativity of my bad wolf at this moment of great stress and anxiety. Wish me luck. 🙏🏼

Balance
One thing we need to recognize it that we each need both wolves. There is a time and a place for anger, when properly directed it can be a powerful tool. We can’t just go through life suppressing our anger. But we can’t be angry all the time either. We have to recognize that both are present and both have a purpose.

What I learned
I learned that one wolf in me is kind gentle one and the other wolf is the anger wolf. I learned that if I stop getting into fist fights and fighting others I will stop feeding the anger wolf and there will be more of a valence.

That we need to have balance in our lifes! If we don't we can literally throw our kids and family into unbearable circumstances and even Caos. We need to remember to breathe in and out before we speak or lash out in order to maintain ones Inner balance.

Sticking to the metaphor at hand, you cannot choose which wolf to feed. There are not two wolves, only your one mind where all your characteristics live. If you don’t take care of your mind, you will never control the parts of yourself you choose to feed.

Katey
Two Wolves
I learned that I am not alone in feeling like I have both a negative and positive self-critical voice in my head. Too often, when I get stressed out, I allow my “negative” critic to control my thoughts which lead me to feel intense anxiety, self-doubt, and feelings of not being good enough. I need to be more aware when that voice chimes in, and block it out, and let the “positive self-critic voice” chime in so I can learn from the situation and grow from it and be my own best cheerleader instead of my own worst enemy. This was a very short, sweet and inspiring story with such an important moral to reflect on.

What I got out this story is that it is important to experience and feel but be aware of our intentions , our thoughts and emotions. How we feed them will determine our balance with in.

What I know about your two selves.
Just like the tale says, getting rid of one will not help. Accepting the good and bad will do much more than help or even bring peace. It will clarity, self respect, confidence and more. Even more courage than you already had. Probably because now that you’ve accepted all of yourself, your more focused on the outside, rather than in.

You can’t give into negativity and stay calm and happy. If you Fred into negativity you will no longer be happy and the bad side of you will show, if you give into the good you will be more happy and at peace.

The choice is yours
I learned that it really is our choice as to which wolf we feed. If something bad happens and it causes us to feed the evil wolf, then the evil wolf will win. If we let the negative energy and events pass, we feed the good wolf, and he will win.

My wolves.
Lately, life has been rough. My mind is blurry with thoughts, and I feel as if I can’t get anything right. I’ve been feeding the wrong wolf, they’ve been in constant battle inside me and I’ve been helping the wrong one. This wolf feels as if he can control everything, but I have realized I need to feed the other wolf. The one who knows who I am and wants the absolute best. This wolf is kind and compassionate, this wolf is the me I know I am. The other is the wolf I know I can be. Neither can control each other, the owner does the controlling. I am the owner.

i love this story. i learned that i cannot kill the other, bad wolf but that i can mindfully feed the right wolf. i think i could make great use of this app, especially with the journaling feature. i had trouble dealing with my emotions today and i ran out of weed but can not justify spending the money on more just yet. i should probably take a t-break and smoke when i get back from Florida, but we both know that’s not going to happen. i hope to not spend a lot of money this weekend and to just chill with molly at home.

We cannot destroy our dark side. It is not our enemy. We can acknowledge our dark side and choose to empower (“feed”) our light side more. This does not require using up all our energy trying to destroy our dark side.

I felt relaxed and calm, enjoyed the story and rhythm & tone of narration.
I learned that it’s a balance btwn good and bad, right and wrong and aggression and kindness, and it’s ok to be accepting of both. Mostly, it’s about awareness of the two and being mindful in one’s actions to try to choose/feed kindness overall.

Wolves Within
I felt inside me the two wolves and reflected on those wolves coming out in real life. You do not want to overly feed either wolf because that would make you fearful to bring out the other. It is impossible to hide both forever therefore a balance must be in place. While you do not feed anger and aggression, you also should not be overly happy and joyful all the time. Sadness and anger is part of life just don’t overindulge in it. Next time you feel angry, simply create a neutral feeling inside yourself and find the balance between your two wolves. Next time you feel happy, sable the feeling but do not become overly happy and indulge in THAT to much either. Simply be excited for the moment inside and do not over excite on the outside.

The One You Feed Podcast
When I saw the title of this story I knew it was referencing to the old parable of the two wolves, which I've already heard of from the One You Feed podcast, which is about mindfulness, meditation and improving yourself and not giving in to your desires or your bad wolf. Hearing this story made me relate more and reference it to my myself than compared to hearing Eric recite it on his podcast every episode.

I learned that yes, everyone has evil and anger within them but also happiness and tranquil. This helps us to see the light at the end of the tunnel and keeps us journeying on. However we must control our anger and learn to not lash out at those around us. We must pause, meditate, think and turn that raging anger into something positive.

Feeding...
This story is a great example of my favorite saying “Where Focus goes, Energy flows” As it pertains to our emotional wolves. I have somehow always chosen to feed the happy, honest, compassionate wolf over my life and actually felt guilty whenever my angry wolf would appear. But this story is saying I should not try to eliminate the negative wolf in me entirely. Hmmm... Let me think about that... there is positive & negative in everything and everybody, so I guess that applies to me to. And apparently I can not rid myself of him entirely? So I guess I should ideally keep him fed just enough to keep him alive but weak... right?!? I just did not like the description of him at all deceitful, angry, liar etc. I guess he may serve a purpose in me In the case I need to kill something entirely evil. But even that is very hard for me to imagine that I would need him around for that because he might try to deceive me to keep the evil alive... but maybe we can never get rid of evil entirely!? ❤️☮️🍀
J
James
Which one?
This was a great reminder of how we all have an internal war going on inside of us. We must choose wisely as to which wolf to feed in order to get the desired outcome we are searching for. One way I like to tittle the two wolves are “Fear” & “Confidence”. Feed the wolf “Fear” and nothing but fearful things and thoughts come to us. Feed the wolf “Confidence” and there’s nothing to hold you back. This was right on time.
D
Doug
Feed the positive side of you!
We all have two separate sides of ourselves: the positive, confident and kind self, and the negative and doubtful self. We need to continuously build up our positive self. We are whichever self we feed the most. So the key is to think positive thoughts, and to notice and observe the negative thoughts, without being influenced by them
♥️

I learnt that we have 2 wolves in all of us. One positive and one negative. Instead of trying to feed one more than the other, we should feed both the same amount, keeping a healthy balance

About the wolves.
Actually there's just one wolf, fed by your thoughts. The wolf is a metaphor for a soul. Feeding badly will make it against you, as the inverse will make it help you. Comprehend your wolf is an act of self-love.

both wolves are necessary but one may need more feeding than the other. never count out the necessity of inverse relationships for life is all about balance. yet focus on feeding the edifying, uplifting wolf within rather than the vengeful.

Day: I lost count
You have to feed the part of you that you want to become. If you feed anger, hostility, or any of those bad feelings, then that is who you will become. Instead you must feed the feelings of kindness, of friendliness. So that is who you may become. I must stop giving into my anger, overthinking, and every emotion that is not a good one.

I’ve battled my two wolves for my whole life. Occasionally over feeding one and making it powerful than the other. But this story provides good insight into the balance of feeding energies. Too much of one energy will overpower another. We have to avoid the incessant power struggle but learning to distribute food (emotion) equally amongst our wolves.

I learned that trying to completely destroy all anger will only make more struggles. If I am to better myself, I must “feed” my more compassionate self.

Picture the wolves!
I understand the notion of the 2 wolves like raava and vaatoo. I will try to feed Raava the wolf. I wanna practice visualizing them in a real situation to increase mindful choices of action.

If you have anger don’t try to fight it or have a war with it let I go, surrender.

Inner-self
I learned that I am in control of how I feel about certain situations, so my reaction depends on with emotion I allow myself to feel. If I choose to react with anger that is not anyone’s fault but mine but if I chose to react with understanding, it might just change the outcome of the situation.

Two wolves
I got emotional when I realized I’ve been feeding the fearful wolf the month of September 2020 and most of 2020. I will acknowledge my fearful wolf and start feeding my peaceful wolf and kind wolf that thinks positively

Balance is important ..Yin Yang🐕🐇
I can balance my life. Be present. Grow and learn. Sometimes I may feel like howling, and that’s ok in moderation.

Tale of two wolves
I learned that it's ok to have two sides to yourself even when one sides not as good as the other and to embrace both.

Two inner wolves
I learned that cultures all over the world understand the duality in human beings — warlike and peaceful, strong and fragile, angry and forgiving — all in one person. Feeding the peaceful wolf is like finding and polishing the inner gem in ourselves and letting the anger, while acknowledging it, slip to the side.

Wow
I learned that these two wolves inside of us are wolves that we cannot tame or favor, but we do have control, although we may not think it at first, we do, and whichever wolf we choose to feed will be our choice, and these two wolves will never be at peace unless you are with yourself, thank you for this valuable lesson.

Two Wolves in Me
This story hit home today. I have been trying so hard to feed the good wolf, and I failed again today. It’s something that I did to myself, so, at least, I am not hurting others. If you knew, you would understand. It’s not drugs, sex, alcohol, or anything like that. I am so thankful that you shared this story; it was exactly what I needed to hear and contemplate. Thank you.
