Wolf In Sheeps Clothing
    #4191073 - 05/18/05 03:20 PM (11 years, 6 months ago)

Someone used that phrase here and I thought back to a time I posted on it in another forum before I caught wind of the guardian of the thresh hold and demons and spirit guides articles I posted here. They made sense.

I realize now how we are our own worst enemies and its getting past our own walls and blocks and ignorance that's to be overcome.........an internal not external affair. They just appear as the external manifestation of the internal struggle. The guardian, the wolf, the demon, the guide.......it's all you being projected.

Someone had a user name with the word wolf in it and raised a huff about why wolves were deemed symbolic of the evil trickster. (maybe from little red riding hood" ?????

Shouldn't the phrase go, "A wolf in grandmas clothing?"

In the same expression you have sheep being the symbol for the sweet and innocent good guy.

So how come we also use the phrase sheep for herd mentality as if its a bad thing?

Are all grandmothers sheep?

Are sheep good or bad?

What about the lone wolf minding his own?

If we pay attention to the trickster wolf because he looks, talks and acts like a sheep, why are we following sheep?

Is the lone wolf who goes his own way actually the smarter one who broke free from being led to the slaughter house?

Are sheep smart or stupid? if they are stupid for being so easily herded and lead to the slaughter, why would people follow them?

It's implied they do if people appeal to sheeps clothing.

The Bible made the lamb the symbol for peace and gentility.



Will Batman and Robin escape the final joke of the Riddler?







Just playing around with symbolism............. :heart:

Do you think the wolf-as-trickster is based on the Native American coyote myths?

There are many Native American stories featuring animals which represent human character traits. The coyote always portrays the trickster, similar to Loki in Norse mythology. He is clever and crafty, and gets the better of everyone else. Joseph Campbell explores the mythology of these stories, and there are several good collections of Native American myths/stories, too.

I thought the fox was symbolic for clever trickery. That must be in anothers culture mythology. Thanks!

The fox is featured in European fairy tales/morality tales, and does represent the same character.
