Freeeeedom is most beautiful,,, the moment we take flight...




So, the other day, this bird flew into a building i was in...

The event got me wondering about what type of metaphor this could be for life...

The poor thing was stuck in a corner, in a room with only one door..

There were broad rectangluar lamps on the ceiling that looked like skylights, and a large floor to ceiling window at the opposite corner of the exit…

The little birdie kept flying up to the lights expecting to get out and would only recognize failure upon hitting its head..

Then it tried the big window... also no exit to freedom..

The most curious portion of the event was how the funny little thing kept trying all the corners, EXCEPT for the one with the exit…

over and over..

Every corner, EXCEPT the one towards the real light and the real freedom...

How poignant...

It made me wonder,,how do you know where the exit is, if your vision and scope is limited?

This little bird couldn't find it's way out of the situation, because it didn't have a concept of the limitations it was imposing on itself...it kept hitting its head on the lights, time after time... The bird's awareness couldn't concieve of the possibility that those lights weren't exits (im gettnig lost here in the concepts im attempting to illustrate uggh)

How often are we lured towards these artificial constructs of freedom, these fluorescent lights of answers and opportunities?

Makes me think about how One can try to expand one's vision.. what it can see, it's own vision and scope .. But nothing actually happens until it finds the corner with the exit and walks through that particular corridor…

Anyhow, later that day, the little bird had gone all the way to the back of the warehouse.. Still no freedom..

We turned off all the artificial lights in hopes the bird would go towards the natural light at the real exits...

Again, i wondered, how many times in our lives have the lights been turned off for us so that we would go towards the light...?

Hmmm, appropriate...

An explanation for that difficult lesson to understand.. the one about how we are actually sooooo loved when the lights go out in our lives.. How our adversities are the ultimate kindness for our eternal souls.. How the seemingly negative experiences we can sometimes encounter, are actually a coaxing towards the true light of love...a road map for our spirit to find a way to freedom.

This story reminds me that everything, and everyone, and all events in my life, no matter the difficulty, i know, indeed are because I am purely loved.

and so are you. You are pure love...
