The Eagle - A Life Lesson

By Deshna Mohanty

An eagle is always known to soar high above the clouds in the sky. Known for its sharp sight, it easily hunts down its prey from miles away. The fact about eagles that amazes most people is that it can foresee a storm much before than it actually occurs.

Even though it has an idea that the storm could prove to be deadly, it chooses to continue soaring high above the clouds. It rises much more higher is such a situation and waits until the wind resumes its normal pace. It begins to set its wings in a different manner. It keeps its wings higher than usual and utilizes the wind in such a way that the wind helps it fly by raising its wings in its direction. 

It never tried to find a shelter or find any other way in which it can escape the storm. Instead, it wisely utilizes the wind and maintains it's pace. It keeps itself stable and mentally aware of the upcoming storm and does what it can best. 

The problems in our lives are like these storms. Sometimes, we may have an idea of them approaching us, while sometimes, we won't. In the first case, we have two choices - either to face the problem or run away from it. Facing the problem enables us to find a solution to it and helps us stay prepared for a similar situation that may arise in the future. Running away from the problem is a temporary solution. It gives temporary relief, only to come back later and haunt us yet again. 

When there is such an obstacle, we must be wise and try to soar high by making things in our favor, just like the eagle. This shall bring out permanent happiness to our dear ones and us.
