Quail are God’s creatures too

Where Great Grandmaster Tae Yun Kim lives, lots of wildlife enjoy a great environment.

Here you see Quincy and Queeny, the neighborhood quail, on their Sunday stroll.  Did you know that quail are very sociable birds and like to stay together in groups?  Except during mating season, when they break off into pairs, and raise their young.

One of the things they like to do is take dust baths together – burying their underbellies into dry, dusty soil and move around….see how well-developed they are?  They have been on this planet for about a Million Years, so they know what works and what doesn’t!

Great Grandmaster Tae Yun Kim‘s words come to mind, reminding me that every creature has its place, it’s purpose.

“Freedom does not mean being free from adversity or difficulty.  Freedom is the knowledge that you have the power to conquer adversity and difficulty.  If you could ask any animal living free in the animal kingdom they would tell you that they aren’t free from trouble.  Predators are everywhere, and life is a daily challenge.  But all animals were born with instincts to protect them, and were given special talents and abilities to help them stay alive and pursue their lives in freedom.”

(The Silent Master, page 141)
