An older man with a world of experience was complaining of the hard daily duties he had. Some friends asked him: “What are the daily duties that are bothering you this much?”
The older man said: “I have two wild accipiter birds which am responsible for taming.
Two rabbits that I have to be careful not to go out of their zone. I have two eagles, which I have to guide them, a snake in a crate and a lion that always has to be in the iron cage, and I have a patient to take care of.”
The friend said: “Oh my God. Are you kidding me? How can one human be responsible for all these wild animals?”
The older man smiled and said: “It is a bitter truth that every one of us is dealing with every day. Those Wild accipiters are our eyes. Those rabbits are our feet, and we can’t let them go anywhere they want.
Those eagles are our hands; we should use them as working hard in the right way of helping ourselves and others.
The snake is our tongue, which always has to be careful it won’t sting others.
The lion is our heart, and we are still in a fight with it to make sure it is choosing the best decisions; and that patient to care for is our soul and body, which is always in need of learning and taking care. Yes, this is my daily hard work, which is taking my breath and making me tired.”
