A little bird
Today is July 9 2014. Something special happened to me today… perhaps it wasn’t that special; perhaps it was a day just like every other day that can reveal magic… if you are open to it.
I have been going through some pretty heavy times the last few years, particularly these past few months. I’ve been at times questioning the reason or purpose to it all and asking “why?” I am open, selfless and have been keeping a positive outlook on every facet of my life (even though it has been all falling away from me) literally!
Aside from the perceived “injustice” I feel I am going through; the anger, the pain, the frustration and the feeling of being let down, there still is a sense of a ‘grander purpose.” I have been sharing openly some of my thoughts and realizations via social media. Most can relate and identify with what I share, some however feel threatened and feel the need to attack. This only shows me that they have some hidden things to face and to work out within themselves- however they choose to deflect it away from them, and instead throw stones at the mirror.
I was standing outside today soaking in the scenery, and I saw a little bird in the plant beside me. It was scared, vulnerable, and yet so free, it was unaware of the wings that it had to fly. For a moment I thought I’d scare it away as I chirped to it using one of my bird sounds. Instead it looked right at me… time stopped for a brief second. I had an Ace Ventura moment; we connected. Instead of my fear of scaring it away I felt a deep joy and appreciation for it, I felt Love in my heart.
As soon as I focused on my heart Chakra the baby bird jumped into my hand. It knew that I knew and it “trusted me.” It didn’t fly away nor tremble, it looked right into my eyes. I smiled at it as a group of people gathered around in awe to see a wild bird climbing up my arm and then perch on my shoulder. Take that Jack Sparrow!
Aside from all that, Jay Z, Beyonce and Lady Gaga were all a few short meters down the road from me at the hotel. I didn’t have any concern for the media scrum that was gathered there, all I was focused on was this baby bird.
The lesson for me here, (and a few ‘other’ personal ones) as I hope for anyone that reads this blog is as follows;
No matter what is going on in your life, there is a sliver lining, keep your thoughts and emotions ‘Joyful’ and ‘Positive’. Feel ‘Appreciation and Gratitude’ for everything that you have. Stay in your Heart (Always) for when you feel ‘Love’, you “Trust’, just like the bird did, and realize that we all have the wings to fly even though we don’t know we have them. No matter who ridicules you- for being ‘Who’ you are, know that they don’t like who they are and need to redirect their fear unto you. Smile and know it has nothing to do with you, they have just exposed every fear that they think they have kept secret.
Be like the new baby bird, Trust Love and Fly high with a grander and higher perspective on life. We are expanding and evolving.
