Motivation Time: Fly Like an Eagle

It is better to be slapped by the truth than kissed by a lie- Russian proverb

It started this morning as I went to the store to get supplies for our juice fast: a huge, dark shape in a roadside tree. I pulled to the side of the road and got out my cell phone to take a picture… yep! A bald eagle.

Two stops and 40 minutes later I figured I’d check the tree on the way home in case it was still there. It was! Except it wasn’t the same eagle. It had the same shape, perched on almost the same branch, but the dark head revealed it to be an adolescent.

In the afternoon I went to the park for some sun and swimming. While there we saw a large bird flying into a calm corner of the lake but it was too distant to photograph. A similar bird came almost right at us about 30 minutes later, but we couldn’t make out the head color because the sun was behind it. Fortunately, the white head came through on the photos I took on its fly by on its way back to that corner. Which means 4 eagles in one day, and from 4 separate encounters!

Yes, the eagle has slapped me upside the head with its message, which is to fly high, look down from our vantage post with knowledge and understanding to become the highest versions of ourselves, and to lead the planet into the Golden Age of the Second Renaissance that the ancients predicted. Now’s the time.

For most of us reading this (or writing it :)) it’s a matter of remembering what we came here for. Here’s a song I wrote a couple years ago that I saved for just the right occasion: Now!

Remember

We’re here to remember just how beautiful
This world that we live in was intended to be
We’re here to remember and to celebrate
How it feels for us all to be free

Can you imagine a world where everyone
Joins their hands together in one big family tree?
We’re changing the world now cuz we share the vision
That in each of us resides divinity

We’re tools of transformation if we choose to be
We’re discarding what bound us to the past
The fears that have controlled us are illusory
And now that love rules love is all that will last

We’ve spent many lifetimes in preparation
For the liberation of humanity
The trials and tribulations we have experienced
Were lessons to live us to live joyfully

We’re here to remember just how beautiful
The world that we live in was intended to be
Came back to help you remember and to celebrate
How it feels for us all to be free

We’re lucky to be here right now to take part in as well as witness the return to light of our beloved planet. Be grateful for that, work on yourself, and remember that the best is yet to come!
