Two Wolves – Who Will Win?

conflictMyths, Legends and Sharing Inspiration

Where do lessons of morality begin? Do they come in big packages that can’t be avoided? Or are they small gifts of opportunities to do the right thing? How small is to small when it comes to Walking Your Talk©?

There is an image circulating around Facebook sharing an old Cherokee legend and attributing the authorship to an anonymous person. Being a writer I often find it insulting when someone quotes a work, yet doesn’t give the credit to the original author. You have the Library of Alexandria at your fingertips. It doesn’t take much to look up an original artist for a picture or search for who originally said a particular quote you like. It only takes a bit of your time and a little effort.

Often times the “shared” information on social media networks are incorrect or inaccurate as well. So sometimes it really does help if you search for a legitimate source for information before you share the post or tweet and continue the process of misinformation.  Such is the case with the “Cherokee Legend” also known as “Two Wolves Within“. A story that has great wisdom and many lessons within its words. Continue reading

Today’s Tarot Meditation Drawing: Seven of Wands – Inverted

7 Of Wands: Inverted

Mystic Faery Tarot by Linda Ravenscroft

Caution is the focus of the day. Be careful how others are trying to appease you. They’re working to stab you in the back at the same time. Trust your instincts and remind them the fire that burns within you, is right under the surface and ready to be released when needed. Make sure you have all your bases covered. Don’t get into the battle and discover you missed something and you might be outflanked. Consider all possibilities, even those that may not seem likely.


Additional Insight:

Even though it maybe two against one, you have the power and strength on your side. And besides, one of the two simply doesn’t have their heart in the fight. Focus on the main adversary and don’t underestimate them! They may not have the where-with-all to succeed, but they’re not acting in a vacuum. They have advice from others as well.

Take the time to consider every possibility and every angle, even if you don’t think they have the ability to think those through. If you can think about them, so can someone else.

Wands hold the essence of Enterprise, Inspiration, Distinction and Creativity. Use this time to focus on your inspiration and creativity to expand your view of the battlefield. Be prepared for anything and you will succeed and win this battle. It may not turn out exactly as you intended, but it should bring you the right amount of inspiration to create what you need and desire.

Sunday’s Homily: Emotional Manipulation

Sometimes people will go out of their way to bait you into an argument simply so they can feel superior. Don’t allow them to manipulate your emotions and control your reactions. ~ Springwolf

Passive Aggression

Control Your EmotionsBeing passive aggressive is a method of showing aggression in an indirect manner. Such as making negative comments in a general manner that is not specifically directed at someone, but is intended to put down or denounce what a specific person said. In other words, it a cowardly way of insulting someone and baiting them into an argument without doing so face to face.

This happened to me recently. In responding to a question on an IMM Ministers forum, I made mention of living in balance by implementing your spiritual beliefs upon your physical path. Walking Your Talk© so to speak. It’s not enough to believe you are spiritual if you don’t apply those beliefs in your every day life and respond to others accordingly. Another member responded to the same question and for some reason felt the need to say “it has nothing to do with balance” and continued to make his point which seemingly had nothing to do with what I had said.

So why add that statement to his response? Why put in a comment that was seemingly directed at my reply, since I was the only one who had, up to that moment, made a comment about balance? To me it had the purpose to bait me into a confrontation or to denounce my view because he doesn’t agree with anything I say on this forum. Being one of the very few, if not the only pagan minister on this forum, there are a few members who consistently attack my comments and perspectives. Not that this is unusual or uncommon in general. If you’re going to put your Pagan hat on and wear it in public, you’re going to get negative comments from time to time. I’m used to this. But it is disheartening to know that this kind of immediate bigotry toward  pagan perspectives can occur on a forum that’s designed for spiritual ministers and specifically fellow ministers in the same organization. To me, it’s a bit hypocritical. Continue reading
