Be it people , incident , virtues , it's always the fight between two wolves .......One evening an old man told his grandson about a battle that goes on inside people. He said, "My son, the battle is between 2 wolves.

"One is Evil. It is anger, envy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority and ego.

The other is God. It is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion, and faith."

The grandson thought about it for a minute and then asked his grandfather, "Which wolf wins?"

The old man simply replied, "The one you feed."

As long as you perceive, think and follow moral, ethical and core values of life, your mind doesn't attract ill-minded people with bad temperament. After all, the birds of a same feather flock together, Annes :-)

Though we wish to forget bad people, and their deeds, they also occupy our mind.. Had it not been true, one would not have seen nightmares and bad dreams..

Going in through the back door (deep thoughts leading into self-realisation), you may realise the bad ones have been deeper within you all the while that makes its presence felt, unknown to us

I am reminded of a beautiful song by Gurudev Rabindranath Tagore...Aguner Paroshmoni Choan Praane>>> the translation of a verse I present below....let us keep the good in our heart...let us confine the bad to the distant shores of our mind..and bless all...

Thy holy hands touch the darkest hour...

Twinkling stars beget in your holy bower....

The eternal darkness fading from the blinking eye...

See thy light in the darkest alcove where thy light might lie...

Bad ones also stay in the mind and keep limiting the stay of good/bad people's presence in the mind. fact is what looks good/best today, doesnt remain for ever as same. time keeps changing the defination of good/best.

Both. Koi aapke acche dost bhi ban jate hai aur koi dushman. Par jab koi dost aapka dushman ban jaye to jada hoshiyar rahna chahiye.
