“And so, the hand that feeds the wild dog must do so no more. Feed the meek.” Mirari
In Mirari, the “wild dog” is characterized as male more often than not. But also in Mirari, we know that some women can be wild dogs as well. The “wild dog” metaphor is an apt description of the subconscious hostility that has engulfed our world.
Here we see that we are to feed the “meek.” I think this is a harkening back to the New Testament, and Jesus’ words about the meek inheriting the world. “Meek” never meant “weak,” though in our language we often equate the two. “Meek” is more akin to “gentle,” and it is a characteristic of those who are shorn of anger and hostility.
A Course in Miracles indicates that anger is never justified, though it is the expression of anger that we really have to watch. The meek do not express anger, even if they feel it. Nowhere is it said in Jesus’ channeled writings that we will get to a place where anger is non-existent. But we will learn, and then discover, how to transmute our anger into socially acceptable ways.
The “wild dog” metaphor is very arresting. Our unconscious hostility has taken us to the brink of annihilation. We need to realize this, and, as Mirari counsels, feed no more the wild dog in us.
