Of Sheep and Wolves


So the sheep keeps dreaming of being a wolf, yet spends an entire life being a sheep. But because it doesn’t work, the sheep pretends to be a wolf. Then the sheep talks, walks and smiles like a wolf, but still remains a sheep. The corral is covered with signs saying “You Are a Wolf!” And with contentment, the sheep accepts the lying words as the truth of its world.

So the sheep learns one day it has to step on the other sheep to be above, but has to fight the common thought of holding hands with love. So the sheep rebels and fight the common thought, just to find itself being left alone.

Until one day it discovered the common thought was promoted by the creators of the signs.

<How could it be? Such a contradiction on its own! Who’s behind this?> the sheep asked in a thought, and “Mirrors” was the response word.

So the sheep types and types, while the sheep reads and reads, while the sheep cries and cries, while the sheep dreams and dreams.

“My goodness, you are a sheep!”
“I’m sorry ma-a-a-a’am, I’m a wolf”
“But you have a wooly skin”
“But I have cold thoughts!”


 So one day the sheep woke up from its daydreaming and found a wolf by its side, seating on the floor.

“What are you dong here?” It asked.
“I’m your counselor” was the wolf’s response.

    Hi Eric,

    Just a little sarcasm about the world (and business) of self-improvement :)

    Hi Kelvin,

    Isn’t it crazy that after all our attempts to find other people’s information, we usually find ourselves behind our own self-destructive behavior? So the gurus can play their game :)

    People always want the “easy button” and there are many self-improvement books and tapes that promise this, but it doesn’t exist or if it does, nothing actually happens when you push it.

    Yet, there are people who offer realistic approaches to looking at ourselves and possibly, making changes. As humans,and not sheep, we have brains to help us decide the charlatans from the guides. Sometimes in the road of life, we need the guides to help us with our self-destructive behaviors.

    I guess in my usual long-winded way I’m saying: Be careful not to throw the baby out with the bathwater:~)

    Hi Sara,

    Although it might be difficult some times to distinguish between the real and the fake information, it is true that it does exist and it does help to those who are willing to take the work in. The problem seems to be when people just take the resulting image and try to reproduce it, while taking a shortcut to avoid the “improvement” part in self improvement…then life seems to be full of wolves trying to have a bite of their skin.
