Once upon a time...
A man found an eagle's egg and put it in a nest of a barnyard hen. The eaglet hatched with the brood of chickens and grew up with them.
All his life the eagle did what the barnyard chicks did, thinking he was a barnyard chicken. He scratched the earth for worms and insects. He clucked and cackled. And he would thrash his wings and fly a few feet into the air.
Years passed and the eagle grew very old. One day he saw a magnificent bird above him in the cloudless sky. It glided in graceful majesty among the powerful wind currents, with scarcely a beat of its strong golden wings.
The old eagle looked up in awe. "Who's that?" he asked.
"That's the eagle, the king of the birds," said his neighbor. "He belongs to the sky. We belong to the earth—we're chickens."
So the eagle lived and died a chicken, for that's what he thought he was.*
The eagle doesn’t have to die a chicken! The eagle doesn’t even need to live as a chicken all his life!
The eagle wasn’t very old when that eagle flew above him in the sky. He heard the eagle’s screech; a familiar sound that had made the eaglet always question why he sounded different than his siblings! And the journey of self discovery began...
*This is a parable from Song of the Bird by Anthony de Mello about the stories we tell ourselves.
It’s possible for all of us to remember who we truly are. Once we realize that we are eagles trapped in a chicken’s mindset, that’s when our lives truly begin. That’s when we have to unlearn what we’ve learned, to let go of the character we no longer resonate with, and to be reborn as our true self.
That’s when we Rise an Eagle: confident in ourselves, courageous in the face of the world, and in control of our lives and decisions. That’s when we create our own reality the way we want it to be.
So, are you living a fulfilling life? Your ideal life?
Have you actually defined what your ideal life looks like? Have you found the time to sit down and think of what you want in your life and for your life? Some of us are completely lost, stuck on the treadmill of life. Some of us aren't as lost, but we're questioning non-stop if we're doing the right thing. There will come a day when we find ourselves stuck in a lifestyle that is far from what we hoped for.
Why do we deviate away from our vision? It's usually because we never took the time to clearly define our life vision. If you want to live a life of your own design, all you need to do is dedicate a few hours to get clear on your vision and then take action.
