Excellent story. Thank you. Deep in my unconscious I feed the good wolf often starve the black Wolf. When I stop to think about the story, I agree that peace is everything as it seems to me it also is in Zen living. When I meditate I can more often allow both wolves to exist. After many years of living and a number of years of meditating, I find that my first unconscious reaction and/or action is to be impatient when something occurs as I don't want to to occur. Shortly after my period of impatience, when mindful, I notice I am patient and I am more peaceful . The time between my patience and impatience often irritates others and me but I am learning to forgive myself again, and again, and again.
