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 a hard decision
In its’ 40’s………….Its’ long and flexible talons can no longer grab prey which serves as food
Its’ long and sharp beak becomes bent…….Its’ old-aged and heavy wings, due to their thick feathers, become stuck 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……………which lasts 150 days.
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…..
After plucking it out, the eagle will wait for a new beak to grow back
and then it will pluck out its’ talons
When its’ new talons grow back, the eagle starts plucking its’ old-aged feathers
And after five months, the eagle takes its’ famous flight of rebirth and lives for
30 more years
Why is change needed?
Many times, in order to survive we have to start a change process.
We sometimes need to get rid of old memories, habits and other past traditions.
Only freed from past burdens, can we take advantage of the present….
