Learning To Fly

Learning To Fly

In Egypt, an ancient visual concept of the cosmos was envisioned as these enormous wings attached to the disk of the Sun. The wings represent Love and truth, the balance of the opposites. Charles Fillmore was attracted to the symbol of the Egyptian wings, and he adapted them to the Unity movement. 

This life will never be without occasional storms. You want to build a shelter within yourself so that when a storm comes, you are safe. All birds know how to find shelter during a rainstorm. But the eagle avoids the storm by flying into a high place above the clouds.

Eagles can soar up to around 10,000 feet high. Using their wings to reach the proper height may take effort and power, but afterward, they can soar with little effort.  You and I have these wings within ourselves, and we want to learn how to use them.

“No bird soars too high if he soars with his own wings.” 

William Blake

“But the woman was given the two wings of the great eagle so that she might fly from the serpent (ego mind) into the wilderness (open spaces), to the place where she is to be nourished (spiritually fed).”  

Revelation 12:14
