In an eagle there is all the wisdom of the world. ~ Lame Deer
Eagle comes from the east, the place of new beginnings and the rising sun. She soars high in the sky, sees the smallest detail with clarity, and does not lose track of the bigger picture. For Eagle there are no obstacles, only opportunities. She calls us to ascend and to acquire a new perspective in life.
I was walking in the bush early this morning and along the ever-changing path of the forest. Some of the path was very rocky and it occurred to me how important it was to be present.
Walking, I realized that although the path is difficult at times, it’s only when I move too fast or am too busy in my mind, that I lose sight of what is right in front of me. I may miss a rock and fall, I may miss an opportunity of an easier path to take. Either way, I will learn from my experience.
To see my path clearly I need to stay present. If I don’t like where I am, wishing it was different, then I sit still and become silent. I imagine I am Eagle, soaring above it all. I visualize the landscape and see it from a new perspective. I see the mystery, and accept I don’t know what is ahead, but I have learned to trust it will change.
The path changes when I understand that where I am in this moment, is perfect.
