I drove into town recently on a Sunday afternoon, enjoying the scenery when something caught my eye. On this rural road, perched high atop a tree was a magnificent bald eagle.
It was a true “WOW!” moment.
I’m one who believes God is always sending us signs, so I quickly realized this eagle sighting was a personal message for me!
Back at home, I searched for the spiritual meaning of bald eagles (of course I did) and found many interesting opinions. None resonated.
Then I happened upon a quote from the philosopher and author Matshona Dhliwayo:
“The eagle only knows how high it can fly when it spreads its wings.”
I got the message.
And I understood it.
I realize I’ve been hesitating on a few projects that I’m not only committed to, but am passionate about.
I’ve let other tasks get in the way of my progress. But why? Fear? Life distractions? Was I just lazy?
I’ve identified the culprit.
Not always, but often, I realize I’ve been led by my ego. That’s the part of my personality that buys into stress, overwhelm and yes, fear.
I know better.
The bald eagle sighting reminded me that I can only find the happiness and peace I crave when I listen to the guidance of my own Divine heart.
Every time I’ve felt like I “soared” in the past, I had followed that same guidance.
Thanks for the reminder, God.
