growing up with wolves

THIS IS BARBARA GRIFFINS’ STORY. Posted here with her loving consent.

I would like to share a story that has been in my spirit all day today.

We are familiar with the tale of the human baby that was found by the wolves and then raised as a wolf.  The baby was taught how wolves hunt, find shelter, talk to one another, and fear man.  Taking this premise, let’s elaborate.  The baby turns into a boy and finds his place within the wolves.  But, something within never really feels a part of the wolves.  As hard as he tries, he never feels like he really belongs.

This boy is then found by humans.  They take him back to the world of humans.  At first the boy is very frightened because he was taught to fear man.  He keeps wanting to go back to the world he knows.  But, there is a memory within that he once belonged to this human world.  He feels the love and acceptance and then there comes a moment when he knows this is who he is.  And as hard as he tries, he can never go back to being a wolf.

We were created as Spirit.  We left Spirit and entered the world of humans.  We were taught everything a human knows.  We were taught how to love, how to feel, how to work, and how to believe.  We were given a name, a family, an occupation, a personality, and an image.  We tried very hard to live in this human world.  But, no matter how hard we tried, there was a knowing within us that this was not who we were.

Spirit finds us.  At first we are very frightened.  There is a guilt within us because we were taught that we had crucified God. We hide.  But Spirit is patient, loving and gentle.  We slowly begin to trust.  And then there comes a moment when we know, we know we are I AM.  We know we are not “me.”  We never even existed as “me”.  It was all a dream.

As Spirit we come to see that “me” is not real.  We try to find “me” and “me” can only be found in the images in our mind.  There is no “me.”  There is no family.  There is nothing but Spirit.  We are free.  We are home.   And we can never again believe that we are “me.”

The Awareness was always there.  The Awareness will always be.  As we shift our attention from “me” to I AM  the perfume of peace envelops us. There is nothing left for us to learn.  We simply have to Be.
