This is another of those quick posts that get you thinking. I talk about spirit animals and spirit guides from time to time among other items of interest here at Timberwolf HQ. Why shouldn’t I? As Spiritual Warrior and Seeker of the Way, I bring things to your attention as they affect me in my development. One thing that I take cognisance of and learn from is the behaviour of animals. They are great teachers and we can learn a lot from them.
I was sent a web page with a number of images on it from a fellow member of the StumbleUpon community. It was a wonderous page for a number of reasons. The page has a number of photographs on it ( a few reproduced here) that tell a story about how disparate beings can learn to live together. The impact of these images caused me to consider what it was I saw and to relate it to our world today.
These animals, beings as they have a spirit and soul, if you don’t believe me look into any ancient or indigenous shamanic traditions, have learnt new behaviours because they were raised together. Normally competitors for prey on the food chain or even prey for one another, these three beings teach us that harmony is achievable through learning new habits.
We need to take a look at ourselves as a species. We are the apparently at the top of the food chain, the ultimate predator and destroyer. We pride ourselves on our intelligence and yet we still set about attempting to undermine our neighbours. Perhaps we should think about learning new behaviours so that we too, like these marvellous animals, can bring our disparate views and ideas together in harmony to save not only ourselves but our animal kin from extinction.

Thank you all for leaving your comments. I really appreciate the show of support. It makes the research and preparation all worthwhile.
Sandra, I will look for that film you mention.
I love reading and watching things on animal behavior, I am wondering if you are aware of a movie called ATANARJUAT The Fast Runner. This is the most beautiful movie showing how husky dogs are left by the owner thru not fault of his, they were left for something like 170 days, the skill and the care and the team work work these dogs showed towards each other is absolutely outstanding and humbling as a human creature. It had me in tears and made me wonder why dodn’t humans treat each other in this manner. I would highly recommend watching it. It is a film by Zacharias Kunuk.
as usual, I found your articles etc. so interesting that I could not sleep as I had to keep readind. Problem is that it takes many days to complete only some of the stories but I don’t mind as due to me suffering with Parkinsons it is a godsend as it helps me to use me memory and exercise my reading skills.
Thank you for all your interesting blogs which I love so much.
