(56) Raven-ego

"He likes bright abalone shells, silver beads, endless vittles, gossip and warm sleeps over the smoke hole. The Raven-ego is the lover-to-be who wants "a sure thing." The Raven-ego is afraid passion will end. He is afraid and tries to avoid the end of the meal, the end of the fire, the end of the day, and an end to pleasure. He becomes wily, and always to his detriment, for when he forgets his soul, he loses his power."

"Women Who Run with the Wolves" by Clarissa Pinkola-Estes.
