Every winter when the days grew short and the nights grew cold and dark, the wolves would come, growling and biting and clawing at the meagre wooden walls of the village. Every year the wolves came, and every year the villagers huddled in their homes and grew sick and hungry and cold, until one year they decided that something had to be done. They held a meeting in the town hall, the only building that had enough wood left for a fire. They talked and talked for many long hours into the night, but no one knew what to do. At long last a young boy came forward. “My mother is sick and my brothers are hungry and my father is gone,” he said. “I will put an end to these wolves”. And the

The first step to this theory begins with achieving control over our consciousness by accepting how forces beyond our control influence the perceptions of our lives. Once this is realized, we are able to able to experience
