Encouraging story. We might not forget that things are much easier and possible if we do things together. We are living in a time when the TOGETHER is most important.

I can completely familiarise with the metaphorical essence of this story. In childhood there are many people who influence us positively, but there are even more that have the adverse negative affect on us. All of us have been indoctrinated in one negative way or another in out tender years. We carry this negativity forever unless we manage to abort it and change the way we feel about ourselves, our values and our life. Parents and teachers had good intentions relying the knowledge they had at the time. This affect follows us throughout our lives and in turn influences our train of thought, priorities and expectations in life. Most of us certainly have a mental picture of ourselves that has kept us back and disallowed our progress in fulfilling our dreams. To overcome such conditioning is not easy as it is engraved in what I refer to as our "hard drive" or subconscious mind. That's really sad and and cheats us out of many a good moment. It was only through the teachings of spirituality/metaphysics that the negative script or the misconception was brought to the surface. It is said that our boss is our subconscious mind, so what information filters through must be in our best interest. There are meditations, Emotional Freedom Technique and other methods that help in reprogramming our subconscious mind. Given that everything is energy, the way we feel has a way of manifesting into our reality but of course our thoughts play a big role in influencing how we feel. Its quite a bit of work but anyway you look at it, its worth the effort. Gratitude, forgiveness and compassion are apparently very empowering. Now we know better. We have faith in ourselves, we are invaluable spiritual beings, deserving, capable, respectful and self love is wisdom not selfishness.

noted...thanks for the beautiful video Henriette. All through our lives we are inundated with images, ideas, but in the end it's up to us to choose who we are and what we want out of life

All my life I've admired Eagles for soaring through the air so gracefully and admired Chickens for laying eggs. But I've never seen a video so inspiring before. Guess I think more of myself as an Eagle so I can glide over treetops and break free from my disability. Thanks for an amazing video, Henriette.

Henriette thank you for this video. The man is actually telling the story I posted in a different video: THE EAGLE WHO ALWAYS THOUGHT OF HERSELF AS A CHICKEN. I think this video is great too, the moral of the story is the same. Thanks
