The Power of Hummingbirds

Hummingbirds are amazing creatures.  They are very beautiful, very wise, strong, resourceful.  In fact, it’s quite mind-blowing how these tiny little creatures are so powerful, and go through the day with such purpose and determination!

They remind me of something I just read in Great Grandmaster Tae Yun Kim‘s book “The First Element.”

“A tiny bird unborn bird pecks away at his shell hundreds of times for no other reason than to be born!  For no other reason than to be who he is.  He follows the life-force as far as his purpose directs.” (The First Element, page 137)

How beautiful!  I am striving to be just like such a little bird, to fulfill my purpose!

But Great Grandmaster Tae Yun Kim takes this way further.

“But you!  You are born with so much more capability than this little bird.  If you are not living your life with the same enthusiasm of a supernova, exploding to fill your space with energy to build an create and transform, you are still inside a dark shell.  If you are sitting around doing nothing more than feeling sorry for yourself, then you are not even as true and honest as the little bird, who at least honors his life force by pecking his way out into the world!”

What great motivation!  Every time I see a tiny little bird I remember these lines and I feel so encouraged to go and achieve my 2017 goals!

    Truly amazing when one stops to think about it. Normally, I’m too busy with life to notice things like this. This is a great reminder for me to slow down and smell the flowers, or watch the hummingbirds 🙂
