Commentary on the Fable of Wolf and Dog

The Great Cthulhu served up a great message in the Wolf and Dog sermon found in Open Pulpit: Text of full story found HERE

The moral of the story ends with the line:
Never trade what is easy or convenient for your connection to humanity. :coffee:

Which should serve as a great warning to all Hu-mans, as in the end, the dog relaxes with a Rat before reconnecting to hu-mans and their handouts.

I would think the message of this short story is one of giving up our connection to community, family and what we know versus losing our station or place that we have earned. There really is nothing more evident in government, social circles and the manner in which many businesses are run today…everyone is looking for a shortcut to the pile of goodies. How many times a week over the past 20 years have we seen the news of “shortcuts” to fame and fortune turning out to be bad for everyone except the 1 or 2 at the top of the pyramid scheme or other less than ethical business?

I am sincerely hoping that the great 2012 debacle is what a few theories conclude…a shift in the global conscience of humans. Many folks seem to think we’re in for all sorts of natural disasters and calamity. I’m not convinced of this and hold it as truth of it being a spiritual change rather than physical/climatic one. The reason I say this is because so many of the pieces of this 2012 calamity have already taken place; such as the total alignment of planets which was June 2004 according to one article and May 2000(1) according to another.

The other, more devastating change would be the shift from the North Pole to South Pole of our Natural Earth Magnetic field. While some scientists think may cause a complete breakdown in our ability to communicate via our electronic components, failure of sensitive directional equipment and so forth, others “in the know” say it will only be a minor inconvenience. So if science is at odds over the actual calamity, why should we all be so readily convinced of the worst scope of probabilities?

Is that the Hollywood in us or our need for disasters to wake us up?

We can go down the long chain of human history and see that from the earliest dates, to now, it usually takes something fairly disastrous for us to “get it” as to “God’s” intentions for us. Why are we so much like the dog, always seeking the easy way out of our troubles? Why does it always take a major calamity for us to “get it” as far as our interaction with Mother Nature goes? The Gulf Oil Leak being the most current situation to tell us “DON’T drill for oil”. Our last few hurricanes telling us living so densely compacted in certain areas is a formula for disaster and so on and so on.

But Why do we have so many major catastrophes as of late? Natural cycles of the Earth? Man-made hazards? Mankind has lost its Awareness to our connection with Mother Earth? All of the above? Mankind has indeed lost its connection with Self. There are literally too many “dogs” in places of authority and influence. Too many inexperienced people taking short-cuts where attention to the most minute of detail is a must. And…I believe most of it is intentional.

As any Aware person here at ULC can tell you, being a Spiritual Person in this world and demanding that always, above all else, in Doing that which is Right, we know there are no short-cuts, no easy way around the complexities of Life. It doesn’t matter if it is our natural resources, our collective peace and security as a Nation or our Eternal Life at stake, people are in fact taking the Dog Route to just about everything now days. And those that take this easy route as well as the rest of humanity all stare at each other and ask “What just happened?”

When has the easy route ever worked out for anyone? After it’s all said and done and over, did they really have the easier route?

Who blames kids in poverty stricken areas of our nation for getting into gangs and drugs? Because they can get away with it, and the easier route works, at least for awhile.

Why do politicians lie to us at every turn possible? Because they can get away with it!

Why do the monopolizing, mega-companies in the world do all the underhanded things they do? Because they can get away with it!

Why do oil companies make the environmentally bad choices they do when it comes to mining and drilling? Because they can get away with it!

Why are our prisons crowed to overflow capacity? Because they didn’t get away with it. However, are the right people in prison? I read a report a few years ago that stated as many as 5-7% of prison inmates are in fact innocent, another 6-8% are taking the “pinch” for someone else and yet another 8.5% were railroaded through the system because of the individual’s less than stellar background, but are probably not guilt of the charges in their last conviction. Even on the low end of this equation, that means nearly 15% of all inmates shouldn’t be where they are…which proves the Dog Route really didn’t work in their favor.

District Attorney’s rise to fame and fortune through convictions.

Oil Company and Corporate Exec’s rise to fame and fortune through turning profits.

Politicians rise to fame and fortune through glad handing and favors for influential constituents.

However, convictions, profits and favors that are not the result of Doing that which is Right, are all worthless in a Spiritual sense. When these results are gained at any cost, it’s not worth having taken the Dog Route.

I’m glad I’m a nobody, with little public influence, it saves humanity from a real threat. One of Doing that which is Right, for I’m as certain as the sun rising tomorrow, that if we did not have the Dog Route there would innumerable people standing still, doing nothing. I think of this every time I see the Greyhound races as to what a commentary on humanity the dog race is. The major difference, the dogs of humanity are not required to wear muzzles, which is unfortunate.

Blessings of Peace, and thanks Cthulhu for a great story.
