REAL POWER: MAXING OUT ON GOD'S LOVE
FLYING LIKE AN EAGLE
God gave you the heart and wings of
an eagle. Your spirit was made to soar in freedom and joy.
Unfortunately, negativity and limitations may weigh you down. You
cannot soar when you carry heavy burdens.
Imagine an eagle attempting to soar
in the sky while attached to a five hundred pound weight. The eagle
would flap his wings, but couldnít budge off the ground. He could
flap until his feathers fell out, and still he would remain
earthbound. Eagles are not meant to carry burdens. They are meant to
soar high in the sky in total freedom. You are like an eagle in
flight and soaring is your domain. You are not meant to carry heavy
burdens. When you see an eagle soaring in freedom, you see your life
as itís meant to be.
NEGATIVE THOUGHTS PREVENT YOU FROM
FLYING LIKE AN EAGLE
Large birds often swallow their food
whole. When you toss food to sea birds, once the food is in their
mouth, they immediately swallow it. Whole fish are swallowed in an
Once I read a book that told how to
capture large sea birds. The capture technique involved using bread
and heavy pebbles. The book advised the reader to wrap a pebble in a
wad of bread dough and toss it to the bird.
The bird will catch the bread in the
air and swallow both the pebble and bread whole. When you repeat this
many times, the bird becomes progressively heavier until it can no
longer fly. Soon the bird has a stomach full of stones, and you can
capture him on the ground. The bird will never soar again until he
eliminates the pebbles and you release him from captivity. He lost
his ability to soar one mouthful at a time.
That is exactly the way negative
thoughts prevent you from soaring. You swallow them one at a time
until the burden becomes so heavy you can no longer get airborne.
Negative thoughts keep you grounded for the rest of your life unless
you eliminate them.
Every negative thought weighs a
psychological ton, and carrying a load of negativity is an unbearable
burden. When you look into the eyes of negative thinkers, you see
weariness. They are worn out by the struggle of carrying a massive
burden on their back.
The normal human state is to fly like
an eagle. It requires years to take the eagle out of a person. Once
the eagle is gone, they forget it was there. Babies soar like
eagles. Watch children during the first five years of their life.
They soar effortlessly. Unfortunately, by twenty years of age, most
of them forget they were eagles.
PLUCKING THE EAGLES FEATHERS
The more complex your society, the
more restrictions there are on soaring. Highly developed societies
donít need many eagles. Mainly, they need drones to fit into the open
slots in the workplace.
We start clipping our childrenís
wings early in life. When they are five years old, we ask them the
question that haunts them for the rest of their life. ďWhat do you
want to be when you grow up?Ē If they come up with a good answer, we
We are not really asking them a
question. We are starting to pluck the eagle. The message is
clear. Society has a certain number of slots where you might fit
in. Which of those slots would you like to occupy?
EAGLES DONíT FIT INTO SLOTS
Eagles are a problem. They donít fit
comfortably into any slot. Complex societies donít know what to do
with eagles. About the only thing they can do is pluck their plumage
so they can no longer fly. That makes the eagle miserable, but at
least it keeps them on the ground, and maybe they will be able to push
the eagle into a slot somewhere so he contributes to society and
carries his own weight.
