Here is a popular social media share on the rebirth process and the famous rebirth flight story of an eagle.
The eagle has the longest life-span of its species.
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 2 options: Die or go through a painful process of change which lasts for 150 days.
The process requires that the eagle fly to a mountain top and sit on its nest.
There 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 its 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, we can take advantage of the present.
