An old Cherokee chief was teaching his grandson about life . . .
'A fight is going on inside me,' he said to the boy. 'It is a terrible fight and it is between two wolves.
One is evil - he is anger, envy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority, self-doubt, and ego.
The other is good - he is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion, and faith.
This same fight is going on inside you - and inside every other person, too.'
The grandson thought about it for a minute and then asked his grandfather, 'Which wolf will win?'
The old chief simply replied, 'The one you feed.'
Mark Swinton at York Minster
Mark Swinton is Assistant Organist at Bath Abbey. Today he was in York to play four short pieces at York Minster.
One of the pieces, Swinton’s Cantus – Prelude on a Somerset folk tune, was by my friend, Bryan Boulter.
A short interlude of colour and light in an otherwise rainy and grey day in the heart of Yorkshire.
