Eagles Belong in the Sky
This take on the classic tale of the Eagle and the Chicken illustrates how a Rooster tricked an Eagle, meant to soar high in the sky, into thinking he was just a Chicken. This allowed his friends and family to keep him to themselves while benefiting from his unique talents and strengths. Using love and appealing to his vanity, the Rooster keeps the Eagle grounded until the Eagle himself realizes he was born to fly which would allow him to reach his true potential. Many of the tactics employed by the Rooster in this story may be unwittingly used by friends and family to convince us not to spread our wings. This parable illustrates how one’s social environment can limit our possibilities and constrain us, whereas learning to fly can have the opposite effect.
