BEHAVING LIKE AN EAGLE 2
…through the tangles of vines and jungle-like forests to the wilderness of pure happiness
Without inspiration, the best powers of the mind remain dormant. There is a fuel in us that needs to be ignited with sparks.
Let us talk about water. Water can be essential and non- essential. It can act in all ways depending on how we use it or force it to be. We are all aware of the essential part of it. When we imagine water in its disastrous side, we see an enemy. With a mighty roar, it crashes through the trees like low-flying missiles knocking them down like spilled toothpicks while sweeping over the valley and lowlands. It gains momentum throwing humankind, houses, vehicles and trees into boulders and moving them like toys to anywhere it feels like. It is controlled by nature. On the contrary, we human beings are not controlled by nature. We have a mind, we reason and act according to our minds capability. We are not water. We do not act like how nature wants us to. We control ourselves and save our anger.
The wise men of the olden days always huddled inside their humble dwellings even when the relentless rain beat on their thatched roofs. Our emotions control us. Our moods are the manifestation that we are founded upon. Our bodies are emotional filters and they bear the unmistakable marks of our prevalent emotions. We should not entertain the bad feelings and emotions take control on us. The feelings of failure, regret or frustration e.g. detachment from our objected goals should not take control of our minds.
They say champions are made of something they have deep inside them. A desire, a dream, a vision. We have dreams and visions. Everybody wants to achieve a certain goal in life. Positive dreams and visions make us work towards a certain goal thus instilling in us the hard work virtue. A person committed to his dreams, clings to it as a vine on a rock wall, perseveres through the tangles of life, and manages to come out successful in the very end.
Some of us feel very unprivileged. We tremble like a raw recruit staggering back from terrors of his first battle. We keep ourselves low-key and feel much diminished. We have not yet discovered the potential that we can spark. We should think highly of ourselves because the world takes us at our own estimate. We are all made as grenades. It is up to each one of us to unpin the grenade in us and burst. We should not feel we are more of schoolchildren than fighters are. Furthermore, we should not feel as if we are milk fed kittens rather than a lion. We are born heroes and we have to evoke that hidden grenade that we have. We should not be spectators. We ought to make things happen. By being spectators, in us is a great potential hidden.
We sometimes feel enveloped by ‘repulsive creatures with demonic eyes and grotesque faces’. By being strong and acting, as if we are strong is the key goal we should present to the ‘creatures’. We should approach problems with courage and we will persevere. If you cannot evoke courage, better fake it! Nevertheless, never face problems cowardly my dear reader.
In conclusion, stones and sticks will break your bones but words will never. Inspiring and motivation words will always move you to the positive and bright ending.
Always behave like an eagle!
