This story I want to share today doesn’t have a lot to do with cancer, except for the fact that you do need to change your way of life. And,most importantly your thoughts, in order to beat the deadly beast, cancer! It’s a very inspiring story and I hope you enjoy it.
The eagle has the longest life span among birds. However when it ages into it‘s forties, it’s long and flexible talons can no longer grab prey, which serves as food. It’s long sharp beak becomes bent. The eagle has two choices, either die or go through a painful process of change that lasts 150 days.
This process requires that the eagle fly to a mountain top and sit on it’s nest. There the eagle knocks it’s beak against a rock until it can pluck it out. After plucking it out the eagle will wait there until a new beak grows back. Then it will pluck out it’s talons. When the new talons grow back, then the eagle will start plucking it’s old feathers out. AND after five months, the eagle takes it’s famous flight of rebirth and lives for another thirty years!
Why is all this change needed? The eagle changes to survive for a longer lifetime. We need to change for making our life a better place to live and become healthier.
In order to survive, we have to start a, change process. We sometimes need to get rid of old memories and old habits. We need to free ourselves from past burdens so we can take advantage of the present. We need to stop looking at life in a negative way, and start looking at it in a positive way.
