"The Swifts, Conflict, Decision-Making, and Following Dreams" - Just wanted to share this lovely piece!
I just read this amazing post from wordpress and I absolutely love this quote and just wanted to share this!
"So, I guess my lesson is that sometimes going and watching the swifts is just a nice way to pass the time, but sometimes watching animals live out their purpose in life makes us question our own and helps us better understand our true nature. Fear is an amazingly powerful thing that can bury us under its weight if we don’t keep it in check. If the swifts were afraid of coming home to roost because of the peregrine falcons that prey on them each season, then the whole ecosystem would collapse. The swifts don’t avoid their journey because of the battle that awaits them at that chimney, they show up every year without fail and remind us that the journey is hard, but we have to go on it anyway."
I am a firm believer in the lessons and teachings of the natural world and this is a beautiful one.
Hope your weekends are swell,
