“Wolf is the grand teacher
wolf is the sage, who after many winters upon the sacred path
and seeking the ways of wisdom, returns to share new knowledge with the tribe.
Wolf is both the radical and the traditional in one breath.
When the wolf walks by you–you will remember.”
–Robert Ghost Wolf
I’ve always loved wolves. More and more in the last fifteen years I have related to them. This one quote gives me more insight into why than almost anything I’ve read of them before. In many ways it describes many of the qualities I aspire to . I don’t claim I’ve gotten there yet but it definitely echoes what I believe is my path or part of my path. Will I reach it or will it take on new shape along the way? Not sure…but a friend bringing up wolves tonight resulted in the picture below and in me finding this quote.
