The Story of the Owl and the Sheepdog - A Parable
There once was an old owl that lived in the trees at the edge of a large green pasture. After a noontime meal, he would often sit in a tree overlooking the pasture with a flock of sheep below. He was sleepily resting when a very large, black sheepdog came to lie in the shade of the tree to avoid the hot afternoon sun.

Noticing the owl sitting in the tree above, the dog said, "Look at those stupid sheep. They have no idea how much we do for them. If it wasn't for us, they would all be eaten by the wolves in no time. They should worship us, not our master! He is never around. We control this pasture."

The old owl said, "Does it never bother you controlling and ruling them the way you do?" "Bother me? Ha, ha!", said the dog, "Fool! Without us the many predators would eat them in no time at all! We are saving them! They need us. They have no idea how much work it is controlling them! Look, they don't even realize that we control them! Ha, ha. In fact, it makes them feel more secure knowing that we are here to protect them."

"Every once in a while, some young ram full of life will try and show his prowess, but we quickly put him in his place. He doesn't try that again I can tell you.", said the sheep dog with a slight grin. "They soon learn that they are not in control here, we are.", he said sternly.

The owl said to the sheep dog, "but don't you realize that you are controlled by humans the same as the sheep?" "Rubbish!, said the sheep dog, "We control this pasture! We tell the sheep where to go and when to do it, he said proudly." The old owl listened quietly and then asked after a short silence, "But you don't get to eat the tasty mutton, the humans do, is that not so? So who is really in control?"

This caused the sheep dog to fly into a rage. Showing his teeth he said to the owl, "If you were not up in that tree, I would eat you right now to show you who rules this pasture! Not humans!" The old owl chuckled at this bravado and said to the dog, "I don't fear your threats, I am not part of your silly game. That is why I spend my time alone, quietly watching this struggle from the trees. It does not concern me."

"Then why are you here?" said the dog, still angry from this affront. "To watch and to learn, just like you", said the owl. "Watching is all well and good, but power and control are what really matters! I am in control of my destiny, unlike these stupid sheep!", said the dog. The dog was still irritated at the turn in the conversation finally said, "I have to get back to work. The master will be coming soon to select a couple of lambs for his dinner. You can get back to your dreaming. I have work to do!"

The dog then returned to the field, angrily snapping at the heels of a couple of lambs straying too far from the flock. The old owl then returned to his watching and to his afternoon dreaming.

Peace,
Fibonacci

Thank for the reply. Personally, I see the sheepdog as all those sad people that have a desire to control others. They hope to gain power and control by doing the "masters" dirty work, when in reality they are no more in control than the sheep.

In my view, they are the sad ones. They sell out to the master and have no idea that they are only pawns in the grand scheme of things.

Examples: Managers, politicians, the church, police, military, so called gurus/teachers. The list goes on.

This is just my view. As with any parable, we each will view this story in a different way based on our experiences.

Peace

I'm glad you found it worth reading and thanks for the bump.

I find it so sad that most people don't even see the controllers/sheepdogs as dangerous, but people to be admired. It is another example of how lost many have become.

What is sad is people try to insulate the sheeple from the harshness of reality. But that is counter productive, we now have the youngest generations turning away from anything we try to teach them. We have to let the sheeple make mistakes! We are only protecting them from learning the lessons of life for them selves. In the process we are loosing our credibility.

All of ascended masters do the same. An owl is a parable of them - they don't interfere with this silly end game of a late just dying Aion. Even when reaching divine power - they don't show or use it. They are saving their accumulated energy to support a Great Switch which is coming soon.

The dog represents TPTB which will be thrown to eternal pit as soon as The King will stand to hold the iron scepter with the golden rings which was hidden thousands of years deep in the bottom of the sea in the kingdom of the Dragoon King of the Northern Sea /Greek deity of Posseidon?/ and no mortal nor deity was able to take it up.

 Quoting: Chrit


So many people have a terrible desire and yearning to control others. They crave power, elite status and control and will do anything or hurt anyone to achieve it. That makes them very easy to manipulate and control by the evil beings in this reality. All it takes to control the "sheepdogs" of our world is money, status, sex and power.

The problem for these lost souls is that sooner or later they will have to pay for their mistakes. They will not be protected and supported by the controllers of the world when they are no longer needed. They will finally begin to realize that they are no better off than the so called "sheep" of our society. I view, priests/preachers, politicians, police/military, supervisors/managers, bullies as very sad and lost beings. We should pity them and not envy them.

To control anyone in my view is wrong. Whether it is with good intentions or not. We each should have the right to make our own choices. That is real freedom.

Peace
