Story of Eagle Rebirth
The Eagle has the longest life-span of its species. It can live up to 70 years. But to reach this age, the eagle must make some tough decisions. In its 40th year, its long flexible talons can no longer grab prey which serves as food. Its long and sharp beak bends. Its old-aged and heavy wings, due to their thick feathers, stick to its chest and make it difficult to fly.
Then, the eagle is left with only two options: DIE or go through a painful process of CHANGE.
The process requires that the eagle fly to a mountain top and sit on its nest. There the eagle knocks its beak against a rock until it plucks it out. Then the eagle will wait for a new beak to grow until it plucks out the talons. When the new talons grow back, the eagle starts plucking its thick heavy feathers. And after 5 months, the eagle takes its famous flight of rebirth and lives for another 30 years.
Why is the change needed?
Change is needed to survive and live! We too have to start the change process. We also have to pluck our unpleasant memories, negative habits and fixed mindset. Only freed from the past burden, can we take advantage of the present. Let us soar again!
