A Crow & Eagle Story – Just Drop Your Ego & Burden
Once a Crow, holding on to a piece of meat was flying to find a place to sit & eat.
However, an Eagle started chasing it. The crow was anxious and was flying higher and higher, yet the eagle was after the poor crow.
Just then “Garuda” saw the plight and pain in the eyes of the crow. Coming closer to the crow, he asked:
“What’s wrong? You seem to be very “disturbed” and in “stress”?”.
The crow cried “Look at this eagle!! It is after me to kill me”.
Garuda being the bird of wisdom spoke “Oh my friend!! That eagle is not after you to kill you!! It is after that piece of meat that you are holding in your beak. Just drop it and see what will happen”.
The crow followed the advice of Garuda and dropped the piece of meat, and there you go, the eagle flew towards the falling meat.
Garuda smiled and said “The Pain is only till you hold on to it. *Just Drop* it”.
The crow bowed and said “I dropped this piece of meat, now, I can fly even higher”.
Do we carry the huge burden called “Ego,” which creates a false identity about us, saying “I need love, I need to be invited, I am so and so.. etc…” *Just Drop*.
Do you get irritated fast by “others’ actions” it may be a friend, parents, children, a colleague, life partner… and get the fumes of “anger ” – *Just Drop*.
Do you compare yourself with others.. in beauty, wealth, life style, marks, talent and appraisals and feel disturbed with such comparisons and negative emotions – *Just Drop*
