Free your Bird|پرنده خود را آزاد کنید

“73rd story”



There once was a little boy who had the cutest little bird. That beautiful bird was dear to his heart so he took care of it with passion and love.


He kept the bird’s cage beside him even when he went to bed. Everyone in the family knew how much this bird meant to him. He was the youngest child so the little boy’s siblings took advantage of him and made him do all their chores.


If he refused to do it, they threatened to free his bird into the sky. The poor little boy had to do all their work and not tell his parents, just to keep his bird safe in its cage.


As time passed, the little boy grew tired of his siblings’ abusive behaviors and no longer wanted to be their slave, so he decided to put an end to the torture.


One morning his older brother called him and said: “I wasn’t able to finish my homework, write it fast and neat or I will let your bird go.”



The little boy calmly said: “Do your own homework, leave me alone.”

His brother said: “Oh, great, so say goodbye to your bird.”


The little boy responded: “I freed my bird last night. This was the only way to free me from being your slave and put a stop to your ungrateful acts.”


This is the story of all of us. The only difference is that that bird to us could be; Power, Money, Position, Beauty, Education, etc.

If we depend on these things in life we will never be able to free ourselves. We should try to have all the great positive things in life without becoming a slave.

  1. What a beautiful parable Laleh. And you’re right, it rings true as our “beautiful bird” is always something.

  4. Namaste Laleh 🙂

    A wonderful little story wrapped around a big idea as is your trademark. Much enjoyed as always, thank you 🙂 There is such freedom and sense of liberation when we make a deliberate choice to let go of the things that constrict or restrict our growth: it is neither a sacrifice nor a compromise but an act of self-love.

    A delightful read, thank you 🙂 Loved the images used.

    Namaste 🙂

  12. The moral to this story is perfect. “We should try to have all the great positive things in life without becoming its slave” – you’ve said that so well. A lot of the time I don’t think we’re even aware just how tied to things we are, just how much we become slaves of so many things that rob us of joy and freedom and invite stress and anxiety instead. Wonderful post, Laleh.xx

  16. I truly loved this, Laleh. When we hold on tightly to something, we are giving it so much power over us and it becomes our weakness that others can use against us. Really powerful message and so uplifting!

  18. Such a beautiful and wise story. The bird had been the boys companion , until the boy gained enough strength to be himself, so he could set him free, and became free himself.

  23. Excellent story,it’s your creating? 😀

    One of the simplest ways to stay Freedom is to let go of all things that make us afraid of losing,I think. 😀

  24. Well told Laleh, and how true. It’s as we get older that we discover these things for ourselves. And hey, the bird was probably happy also to be free. Oh, and nice choice of pics.

  29. A wonderful story. Just like the bird, a freed heart and mind, helps a soul to truly be free. To soar higher than those, who would try to keep a heart in bondage!
