The Vision of an Eagle
… nobility, pride, fierceness, freedom, superiority, courage
… powerful intellectual ability
These are the metaphorical meanings of the eagle taken as a symbol.
The vision came to me during one silent sitting meditation I had. That was after I asked for insights regarding what I perceived as the type of personality I had, which was a sensitive-introvert, and regarding what its use is for my spiritual development.
Having consciously asked for the insight, I somehow found myself reading related articles:

- 10 Tips for Highly Sensitive People | World of Psychology - http://psychcentral.com/blog/archives/2012/05/13/10-tips-for-highly-sensitive-people/
In the course of my readings and reflection, I had come to understand spirituality as an innate need for food the soul in the sensitive-introvert.
… the WHY? of an lifetime finally answered.
I knew for a fact that the sensitive-introvert was quietly caring, praying for what’s good for all, instead of imposing one’s will on others by openly telling them what to do.
There is power in being quietly caring:
“Blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the earth.”
I have confirmed in my experience that by not imposing on others, they will do what is needed on their own accord. It gives them the freedom to think and consider the accomplishment as their own. Looking back, this has been confirmed in my experience several times. Metaphorically, I had prayed for people to light at least one little candle and days later during my younger daughter’s Christmas program, the children sang “One Little Candle” and lighted candles up on the school auditorium’s stage. That was over 15 years ago when she was in elementary school.
Recently, I prayed for everyone to be more loving towards each other. I had the opportunity to witness that prayer in action during my older daughter’s wedding. I never asked for my daughter to invite only like-hearted people. But on the day itself, I saw the outpouring of love and support among four family clans---the groom’s father’s and mother’s, the bride’s father’s and mother’s. It was just the most perfect thing that happened in my life. The energy in the reception hall was electrifying. I got so caught up in the electricity of the love that was there between the bride and the groom, it was hard to fall asleep overjoyed after the celebration was over.
Being spiritual, one knows what mankind truly needs, what truly matters. Being quietly caring, one has the power of the meek, to make the seemingly impossible happen, to move heaven and earth.
The downside to being outspoken, is man’s usual tendency to be very political. They usually support the idea when it is perceived to have come from them or a member of their clan and reject the idea if they feel it will give the impression that the other is superior, more intelligent.

I had initially thought that these insights were just a personal message for me but realized later that it was just as true for everyone else, to help in the spiritual evolution of mankind.
We can start with praying for or sending loving thoughts to the dolphins, for example, whose species’ mind seemed to have somehow decided to evolve to extinction. We can think of supporting other causes that seem to need a more urgent and important attention in our experience or environment. We can pray for the good, God’s will for all.
The sensitive-introverts of this world although apart in nautical miles can join each other’s heart, mind and spirit to move mankind’s evolution away from the destruction wrought about by selfish, materialistic pursuits. There is a list of top things that distract man from his original spiritual pursuit found in the book “Thiaoouba Prophecy”.
… noble, proud, fierce, free, superior, courageous
… with a powerful intellectual ability
… in self-renewal,
The quietly caring sensitive-introvert can change the world.
