The wisdom of ears part 6
Ready to be offended? You are like a confused and lost sheep without a shepherd to give you guidance and safe pasture. Forget any imagery you have of yourself as a lion, or a shark, or a wolf, or an eagle, or whatever critter you invest with some foolish notion of nobility. You are a sheep.
