What One Fears…
“What you do not know, you will fear.
What one fears, one destroys.”
Stand up for what you believe in, even if it means that sometimes you’ll stand alone. Fight for those who cannot fight for themselves, and be the voice of those who cannot speak. Tread Softly….
Wolf (Madadh-alluidh): The wolf is a cunning intelligent creature, capable of out-thinking hunters. It can teach you how to read the signs of Nature in everything, how to pass by danger invisibly, how to outwit those who wish you harm, and how to fight when needed.
Humans have, throughout the course of history, followed the ways of the Wolf. They have studied the ways of the hunt and learned from the wolves social structure. And it is from this communal culture, the nature of the Wolf, that humans have learned how to co operate in order to achieve a goal. There is much to be learned from the wolf if only we will listen.
Wolf is the animal guide of true teachers. Wolves are connected to the moon and feminine energy. They teach us to respect our emotions and unconscious urges. And also to have respect for the wildness of our animal natures, and be prepared to face the darkness within ourselves. Wolves are connected with Sirius the Dog Star, and many cultures still believe that this is where our ancestors and teachers come from.
Wolves are fiercely loyal to those they consider part of their pack. They often have strong leadership qualities. It is important that they learn to lead the situation gently, without tearing others apart or the pack will likely turn on them. Whatever spiritual beliefs they may have those who connect with the wolf will feel more at peace when they honor or re-link (the actual meaning of the word religion) with the life force.
Wolf – creation, healing, purification
“If you talk to the animals, they will talk to you and you will know each other. If you do not talk to them, you will not know them. And what you do not know you will fear. What one fears, one destroys.”
Chief Dan George
