The Eagle


No wonder God wants  us to spread our wings and soar with the eagles

The eagle has the longest life-span among birds

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

Then 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 5 months, the eagle takes

it's 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


When it  rains, most birds head for shelter;
the eagle is the only bird that, in order to avoid the rain
starts fying above the cloud


Isaiah 40:31
But those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength.
They will soar on wings like eagles;
They will run and not grow weary,
they will walk and not be faint.
