Soar Like an Eagle

in Awakening

Did you know that an eagle knows when a storm is approaching long before it breaks?

The eagle will fly to some high spot and wait for the winds to come.

When the storm hits, it sets its wings so that the wind will pick it up and lift it above the storm. While the storm rages below, the eagle is soaring above it.

The eagle does not escape the storm. It simply uses the storm to lift it higher. It rises on the winds that bring the storm.

When the storms of life come upon us, like the eagle, we can rise above them and ride the winds of the storm that bring sickness, tragedy, failure, and disappointment into our lives.

What is your greatest challenge right now? Jot it down. And then let it lift you higher.

Thanks a lot for the motivating story about eagles; I love eagles and I’m inspired by them, I have as a photo for my profile an eagle.

I already know this truth I know also that an eagle can live 70 years. To make this age, it makes hard decision. In its 40’s, he is left with the option to die or to go though a painful process which lasts 150 days. The process requires to fly to a high mountain knocks its beak against a rock until it is plucked out; when it grows within days, it will pluck its talons when new talons grow back, the eagle starts plucking its old aged feathers. After 5 months he is reborn and live for 30 years more.

A Urdu Poet “Poet of East” Illama Iqbal says
“Tundi-e baad mukhalif say na ghibra aye uqab
Yeh to chalti hai tujhay ooncha uranay k liay”.

Oh eagle don’t afraid of strong winds (storms)
This blows to fly you up and up.

Beautiful wisdom. Let us sore above our troubles and turbulence with illuminating presence. Our greatest challenges becoming the wings which take us beyond the storms of our heart, peacefully gliding with humility and Truth. With a new perspective we harmonize with difficult tasks, with mortality, with illness and old age. Free from humiliation, free from disgust, free from irritation, our hearts set on radiant evenness, sensitive to the elements, steadfast in virtue and gratitude. Here skybound we fairwell in the clouds of thankfulness. Bringing back to earth rich vision and new wisdom of a special kind.

Excellent Warmth and Friendliness to Stephen and everyone.
Peace and Thankyou
