Rebirth of the Eagle - A lesson in personal change!

There are many things we can learn from the life of an Eagle!

The Eagle has the longest life-span among birds. An Eagle can live up to 70 years. But to reach this age, the Eagle must make a HARD DECISION in life!

 

In its 40’s, the eagle’s long and flexible talons can no longer grab prey which serves as food. Its long and sharp beak becomes bent and makes it further difficult for the eagle to eat. Added to this trouble, the eagle’s old age and heavy wings, due to its thick feathers, become stuck to its chest and make it difficult for the eagle to fly.

A hard decision:

At this point, the eagle is left with only two options – Die, or go through a painful process of change which lasts for 150 days. 
This process of change requires that the eagle flies to a mountain top and sits on its nest. While on the mountain top, the eagle endures the pains and knocks its beak against a rock until it plucks it out. After plucking it out, the eagle waits for a new beak to grow back and then the eagle will start another painful process of plucking out its talons. When its talons grow back, the eagle starts another process of plucking its’ old-aged feathers. After getting rid of these, the eagle waits patiently for five months on the mountain top to be renewed or given a re-birth. At the end of the fifth month, the eagle will then take its famous flight of re-birth and lives for 30 more years!

 

 

Why do we need change?

Our lives are not determined by what happens to us, but by how we react to what happens to us. Not by what life brings to us, but by the attitude we bring to life. God gives us the strength to go on, as if we are on the seemingly tireless wings of the soaring eagle.

Many times, in order to survive, we need to start a change process. This process could mean getting rid of worries, old memories, habits and other controversial and troubling past traditions, or even stopping entirely certain ways of doing things. It could further mean getting rid of some negative people or ‘friends’ in our lives. Only freed from unnecessary past/present burdens that weigh us down can we take full advantage and control of ourselves, and thus give our lives meaning, and ourselves - 'A FUTURE'.

Remain Positive!

A positive attitude can cause a chain reaction of positive thoughts, events and outcomes.

Remember, when it rains, most birds head for shelter; the eagle is the only bird that, in order to avoid the rain, starts flying far away above the cloud. The point is: Problem is common to ALL, but attitude and approach to the problem makes the difference.
