Vegetable Soup for the #Wolf Lover’s Soul

It was a million or more years ago... the wolf pup roamed throughout all of the earth with his family. East to west and north to south, the pup could see a vast  wilderness full of his brothers, sisters, cousins, aunts and uncles.  The earth vibrated with the sound of thunder from millions of herds and flocks of birds were so many that they resembled a dark cloud blocking the sunshine from the earth...


Loud lightening and thunder came, firing bullets into the gray wolf, and leaving a blood stain of red upon the earth.

Hate filled the earth for the wolf pup, a bounty was placed upon the pup’s family. It wasn’t long before he was gone from the earth’s wild places.

Where did all the wolf pups go? Gone from the earth and replaced with fat game herds engineered as targets for recreational sport hunters.

All the earth’s wild creatures fled with dread and fear from the advancing tide of civilization.

With the wolf pup gone the earth became sick and  humans cried out for an answer to save the earth.

Then, a new conscience was born, bringing a new hope for the earth. Those who love the wolf for his character and true loving nature came forth to protect him, creating a recipe known as, a vegetable soup for the wolf lover’s soul.

Here are the ingredients.

Always speak from the heart, it's where the vegetable soup for the wolf lover’s soul begins--

Remember the wolf pup is a free sentient being and belongs in the  wilderness.
Remember to speak the truth, the fact is that a wolf pup is real, as real as the rhythms in the earth.
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.
Remember to speak for the wolf pup, speaking from your heart undoing injustices done to him and to bring justice to his family so they may not ever perish from the earth again.
Remember to listen for the wolf pup, always keep your heart open to thier call in the wild, so it never leaves the land ever again.
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; these greedy beings, lacking a soul, are always thinking of new ways to steal from the earth in the name of progress.

In conclusion, the vegetable soup for the wolf lover’s soul must be made often, stirred often, shared often for the wolf pup to drink from, then the wolf pup will know there are human beings who love him.
