It was a very long time ago when the wolf pup and his family roamed throughout all of the earth. From east to west, and north to south the pup could see a vast wilderness full of his brothers, sisters, cousins, aunts and uncles. The pup’s earth vibrated with the sound of thunder coming from millions of herds. Flocks of birds could be seen in the distance looking as a dark cloud blocking the sunshine from the earth. All these animals relied on the wolf pup and his family for their very survival.
All at once…
There came a loud sound of lightening & thunder from guns firing bullets, and the killing began of the wolf pup and his family. Greedy men placed a bounty upon the pup and his family. It wasn’t long before he was gone from the earth’s wild places. The earth was now stained red from the blood of the wolf pup and his family.
Soon, the Earth became full of hungry game herds. Herds that consumed all the plant life as they roamed the places where the wolf pup once lived. Men moved throughout the wilderness removing everything that they deemed hostile to them. These greedy men went about raising fattened animals for their needs and wants.
Remember the wolf pup looks for compassionate human beings full of courage. Human beings that will guard the earth against the greed of those who only see with their mind. Greedy beings, lacking a soul and are always thinking of new ways to steal from the earth in the name of economic progress.
As greedy men moved into wild places the earth became a hard place made up of concrete structures. All the earth’s wild creatures fled with dread and fear from the advancing tide of these greedy beings. With the wolf pup gone the earth became sick with disease, and soon one by one the animals that once depended on the wolf pup for survival died.
Calls of the wolf pup and his family lingered deep in the ancestral home of a few men…
There began a new conscience born from hearts of good men. Just like the first flower of spring, this new consciousness was a sign of hope. This new consciousness filled the hearts of many good men. They began to respect the wolf instead of hating him. These good men came forth to protect him, and created a recipe known as, a vegetable soup for the wolf lover’s soul. This vegetable soup was made for saving the wolf pup’s life.
If you wish to help save the wolf pup follow these ingredients:
Always speak from the heart because its’ where the vegetable soup for the wolf lover’s soul begins.
Remember the wolf pup is a free sentient being, and the wilderness is his home.
Remember to speak the truth as a wolf pup is real, as real as the rhythms that make up the earth itself.
Remember the wolf pup is the protector of wilderness. Every living and non living thing upon the earth, every leaf, every drop of water, the soil you step upon and air you breath is protected by the wolf pup.
Remember to speak for the wolf pup. You must speak from your heart, then you will be undoing injustices done to the wolf pup. By speaking from the heart you will bring justice to his family lost. Do this so they may not ever perish from the earth again.
Remember to listen to the wolf pup’s voice. You must keep your heart open to his call in the wild, so the wolf pups will never disappear.
Remember the wolf pup looks for compassionate human beings full of courage. Human beings that will guard the earth against the greed of those who only see with their mind, greedy beings, lacking a soul, that are always thinking up new ways to steal from the earth in the name of economic progress.
And most of all, the vegetable soup for the wolf lover’s soul must be made often, stirred often, shared often with other humans. Do this and the wolf pup will know there are human beings who love him.
