What a coincidence to read the same day two telling stories about flying without wings and the great wisdom both posts offer.
“I keep flying without wings
With blessings from grateful hearts!”
Grateful hearts make us fly without wings. The question is what grateful hearts can do?
The second post authored by Elena Gabor is about a wingless bird that could not fly. This bird was walking around happily feeding on tree fruits. All the other birds started to mock the wingless bird “that she is unworthy, that she does not fit the bird standards, that she doesn’t deserve to be called a bird, that she is hopeless”. The bird felt helpless and wanted to leave. While she was leaving a majestic tree talked to her:
“Where are you going?
Just look around and see all the beautiful trees and fruit bushes which grew from the seeds of the fruits you ate over time!
All these trees and fruit bushes are here because of you. Do not leave.”
This gratitude filled the heart of Fatima and made her fly with her wingless heart.
It is not about what we cannot do. More, it is about what we can do well whether we are on land or high in the skies.
You shall fly with your wingless hearts by serving humanity and making other peoples’ lives worthy.
