thank you for sharing the Entire story. I have often heard only the first version which denies one or the other. We all have yin/yang, dark/light, the bright/shadow side. It is truth that we need to be in balance to truly help ourselves and others. I was just speaking about this with a friend; when we are "grounded" we can serve so much better. If we are too joyful, it may feel as if it does not come fully from our heart, it may be off putting. When we combine our joy with vulnerability, we are more human and approachable. One can say this with Any of our white wolf or black wolf qualities; it is all about seeing the strength of both. Thank you so much for sharing. I can say that in my life, when I am in balance and at peace with both sides is when I am in the flow; when things seem to come together for me; whether in my Storytelling Work or when I was working in cancer research or at the AIDS hotline. It was all similar experiences; in balance reflected in Every aspect of my life. thank you for sharing. I needed this reminder today as I work on meditation. HUGS to you.
