A brief description of the natural wolf family
The wolf family is called a “pack.” The pack is a nation of its own, sovereign and independent of any other rule. The pack has its’ own territory and its’ own laws. By studying, and becoming knowledgeable of the way of the wolf, a person becomes tuned in to the failings of the world in which they live. A person begins to see what they have come to dislike about society and politics and some will want to change it. In order to change your world you must start with yourself. The major obstacle to your change is your environment. It’s you, your immediate family, your extended family, friends, pets, job, home, and material things. It is everything within the circle that you call your life. You must figure out which ones are detrimental to your existence, influence their actions to align with your own life, or avoid or eliminate them altogether.
From the beginning of time, The Creator set Wolves upon the earth to be an example for us. The Great Brother spirit of the Wolf: So called because our Creator created the wolf before he created us men. The wolf has learned from the Earth Mother and the Creator, Our Father, more secrets than we will probably ever know. Rightly so: they were here first.Trusted with teaching the lesser beings of the age proper social interactions. The evolution of man from the dawn of our time will never be as complete as the evolution of the wolf has been. Wolves are seemingly complete in their evolution. When full grown a wolf is designed a formidable predator. Because of the methods of interaction within their society, and the close bonds created between the members of the pack, the pack becomes a tight family unit with seemingly military like precision and efficiency. Making them stronger together than separate and forming a perfect predatory machine. This cannot be done without efficiency, order and structure. Their awareness is heightened from other beings. Their sense of reason is better than that of a simple canine. A simple dog ,depending on the breed, can be as intelligent as a 5 or 6 year old child in some cases. A wolfs' intelligence reaches beyond that. Because of this they have been more successful in adapting to their environment than most other species, including ourselves, and thus ensuring the survival of the species.
This is a lesson for us. Learn to adapt to your surroundings and environment, learn to thrive in it, and learn to overcome your hardships by studying your situation learn what works and what doesn’t. Don’t repeat your failings. Don’t become trapped in a vicious cycle of failures. When the pack cooperates with one another, the pack has a better chance of survival than when alone. The wolf learns from its mistakes and changes its course of action to avoid repeating the actions that yielded no gain.
Wolves have learned not to conform to ways foreign to their own. But instead utilize their experience with the foreign ways to learn how to adapt their behavior in order to overcome the situation to ensure their own survival. This is most evident in captive wolves. Their ability to learn is tremendously impressive. They could learn ways not native or “tricks” but, they remain true to their own ways even when outside influences attempt to force them to act in a way that is out of character to them. They force their captors to forge relationships with them on their terms. They may accept a human as a dominate figure, but only because they choose to. They may be quick to remind a human exactly when they are out of line. While they are excellent independent thinkers, their collaboration with their pack mates makes them even smarter. They may act alone at times but usually only do so for a greater good. Unless they are without pack mates, a lone wolf, they will usually only act in the best interests of the pack.
The packs usually consist of members that are blood relatives, but at times, outside wolves become initiated into the pack and are accepted into a particular place in the hierarchy. They communicate with each other in many ways, some even ritualistically, and tune in to each others vocalizations as well as body language. Only the Alphas are mated within the pack. No others are usually allowed to mate but all are allowed to engage in the raising of the young. This is important in establishing and maintaining a hierarchical society. Wolves seemingly tolerate their elder pack mates and support them when needed, even those that have lost an alpha status, depending on how that member interacted with the other members in the past. They are extremely tolerant of their young and if the mated pack leaders are unable to care for them another pack member may adopt them or serve as a baby sitter. The entire pack helps raise the young. This teaches them how the hierarchy works, how to love and how to play. This is what makes them well rounded adults.
Since all pack mates are indeed formidable in a violent encounter, they will avoid combative confrontations with outsiders by respecting territories and remembering their place within their own pack. Wolves go to great lengths to avoid a fight. They are very confident in their abilities. They know they are strong and could easily inflict injury or kill an opponent but won’t usually demonstrate this ability unless they are cornered and avoidance is not an option. Then fight they will! They will not back down, they will not surrender, and will fight to the death unless they accept the surrender of their enemy.
Wolves seemingly prefer to live in a pack structured environment. The loyalty and affection displayed to the members of their own pack is unsurpassed by other animals. They are playful and attentive to the other members and will ritually greet each other upon arrival or when leaving. They do develop associations outside the pack even special relationships/ friendships especially if they are beneficial to the pack, but they most commonly associate only with the pack. This builds a kinship that is strong as steel and ensures the survival of their species.
Now that I have summarized the basic wolf pack I must tell you that all packs are comprised of individuals and each individual may express themselves differently. This isn’t wrong and is much the way our own people express their own individual styles. But one thing you will see is that wolves, though unique from one another, are all part of the same society and will not conform to outside societies or cultures. They keep true to their own, just as we must: As instructed by our Father, The Creator of all things.
