A wise old sage, years ago, in some Eastern religious tradition, was educating his young disciples about life and he told them a story.
It is a story that tells of a dreadful battle that goes on in every person between two great lions.
One lion is wicked: he is fear, rage, jealousy, sadness, greed, pride, self-pity, shame, hatred, weakness, lies, rivalry and superiority.
The other lion is good: he is happiness, harmony, loe, trust, sharing, peace, modesty, gentleness, compassion, friendship, understanding, charity, truth, kindness and loyalty.
The sage was asked, "Which lion will win?"
He replied, "The one you feed the most."
