Keep the wolves at bay
There comes a time when we must stand and fight. Once more into the Fray. The last fight I will ever know. There is a pivotal point in a man’s life where he must look into the face of his predator and walk straight towards him with the same rapacious nature. Sometimes he must embody that which seeks to destroy him. If you haven’t seen ‘The Grey’ with Liam Neeson; you need to. * Spoilers Alert*
Below is the last scene of the movie. The plot... Liam and a group of others are stranded in the wilderness whilst getting tracked by wolves. The wolves eventually flank Liam into their Den. Realizing this, Liam begins to embody the predator. He nods to the evil he is facing. There is no one coming to save him. No where else to flee. He accepts his fate. He gets pissed! Liam then tapes broken airplane bottles into his fist and a blade taped into his other. He looks deep into the eyes of the Alpha. The shot then cuts to a close up of Neeson’s eyes. The last couple seconds of the movie you watch the spirit of his eyes shift. You can see war in his eyes.
“The eyes are the window to the soul” - Proverbs 30:17
Wolves are endurance or coursing predators. They chase their prey, often over longer distances, sometimes even a few miles, in order to find the right animal or opportunity. Wolves exploit your weaknesses! They are grim opportunists. Wolves work on intelligence and collaboration. They are stalkers. They watch you from a distance looking for cues by way of senses to find the weakest point of attack. They will flank you and put you where you will be your weakest to defend against attack.
The FEAR within you operates in the same manner. The kicker? You’re the predator and the prey.
