But one eagle, saved as a small chick, grew up in a cage for 10 years. When the gate opened, he had forgotten how to be an eagle, wild and free.

Did you know that human beings aren’t much different? We are meant to live life in abundance, to fly high and free.[/vc_column_text][vc_custom_heading text=”What would it take to unlock our mental cages, to let us fly free again?” font_container=”tag:h2|font_size:3.1%20em|text_align:left|color:%23abcaea|line_height:1.5″ google_fonts=”font_family:Merienda%3Aregular%2C700|font_style:400%20regular%3A400%3Anormal”][vc_icon icon_fontawesome=”fa fa-key” color=”white” align=”center” css_animation=”appear”][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][vc_row_inner css=”.vc_custom_1445943332230{padding-top: 5% !important;padding-bottom: 5% !important;background-color: rgba(44,44,44,0.7) !important;*background-color: rgb(44,44,44) !important;}”][vc_column_inner width=”1/3″][vc_message style=”square” message_box_color=”chino” icon_fontawesome=”fa fa-quote-left” css_animation=”top-to-bottom” el_class=”book-testimony”]This is a review from Amazon.com.

This happened about a week prior to our visit.

She told us how excited they were when the bird finally arrived from Pretoria in its wooden crate. They knew that this was the day for the eagle to return to the life and environment of its design: It would never need to waste another day in a cage.

Their excitement soon turned to frustration when, after opening the cage, the bird just sat there with blank eyes and refused to fly!

This continued for several hours. The ten years of caged life must have trapped this poor bird’s mind in an invisible enclosure! How could they get the eagle to realize that it was indeed free?

This is a powerful metaphor of the human condition. How do we break out of our own mental cages to realize, we are truly free indeed?[/vc_column_text][vc_separator][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_custom_heading text=”Buy the book” use_theme_fonts=”yes”][vc_column_text]Available in paperback.
