Which dog are you feeding?

Following the succesful release of his book, an American Indian Elder was interviewed on TV.

The TV reporter expressed how impressed he was with the Elders story and asked him how he managed to reach such a high level of wisdom and overcome  his inner obstacles.

Here’s the elders reply:

“It’s quite simple really. This is how I see it: inside of me there are two dogs. A good dog that wants nothing but what’s positive and wholesome for me and a bad one that wants nothing but harm. And the bad dog always wants to fight and destroy the good dog”

“That’s great” said the presenter. “Such a simple yet profound explanation of the conflict within us.

But I have one more question: which of the two dogs wins?”

The Elder replied:

“The one that I feed the most!”
