Eagle or Seashell?

Submitted by 6 Comments | 7,062 views

Seashell After creating the earth God started to design creatures.

At first he created the Seashell.

The Seashell had quite a boring life: The shell opens, water runs through; the shell closes. Open, close, open close… all day long.

Next God created the Eagle.

Eagle The Eagle had the freedom to fly over oceans and land and he had the ability to reach even the highest mountains. For the Eagle there were almost no limits – but for this freedom he had to pay a price! Day in and day out he had to fight for prey to feed himself and his offspring. It was not easy – however he was happy to pay this price.

Finally God created Man. He showed him the Seashell and then the Eagle and asked him to decide which life he wants to live.

– After an old Indian creation myth

Even today we face the same big choice:

Do you want the life of the Seashell or do you choose the life of the Eagle?
