Who is that peeking out from under tall grass and underbrush?  Yes, that’s Corey, Corinna’s cub.  He feels quite safe there and he knows that I wouldn’t do anything to attract mommy’s attention.  Coyotes are highly protective of their young and will fiercely protect them.

You might wonder what we can learn from coyotes.  Well, for one, Dr. Tae Yun Kim emphasizes how we can learn from every animal, every plant, every piece of nature.  They are God’s creations and they all have something to tell us.

Even Coyotes.  Many farmers and rancher view them as dangerous predators, and they are absolutely right.  Yet coyotes are very intelligent animals who work together and plan their hunt together.  They know the power of teamwork.

But even when they are temporarily by themselves, they know what Dr. Tae Yun Kim teaches us humans:

“Too much of the time we feel controlled by forces outside us, when in fact, the goal of life is to realize that all those ‘forces’ are made of the same energy we are.  We are one with this energy and we can participate with it; we can transform and direct it instead of letting it just act on us.”

(The First Element, page 124)
