Animals reflect our behaviour. The animals that we feel a closeness to, encounter often, engage with attract and so on; have a role to play in that moment of our lives. They offer an understanding to us of the ‘play’ that is our current experience and give insight into the intricacies of our lives. Following is the understanding for the magnificent Owl.
What do you say?
Are your actions wise?
Do they need some more thought?
Would it be wise to think more carefully just now?
Indeed. This is what the owl is telling you.
BE wise. BE thoughtful; for wisdom and careful thought is just what the doctor ordered.
Wisdom is not something that we have to begin with. No, wisdom is acquired. And how is it acquired? I shall tell you. It is a learned behaviour. That’s right. It is a learned behaviour. Sounds funny, however, this is true. Wisdom is created by our actions, or it is not created by our actions. Are we to create wisdom, or are we to be stuck in the mire of our thoughts and behaviours? This is what the Owl is asking of us when we see their beautiful form. The question they pose is purely individual to the individual. It speaks of going within to where all knowledge dwells. Do you know where all knowledge dwells, my friend?
That’s right. All knowledge dwells within the soul. It is the soul that has the knowledge of all ages. Not just today’s knowledge. No, it holds all knowledge from time past to time (so called) future. Yes, my friend, the soul holds miracles in the palm of its hand (metaphorically speaking of course). And so, my friend, please seek the soul when confronted with difficulties, for it has the answers that you are looking for. And how do we find the soul? We find the soul in those quiet moments between thoughts. Yes, my friends, the soul can speak to us when we allow our minds to be quiet.
And so it is that when we are attracted to the magnificent Owl species it is an indication that our soul is yearning to be heard; yearning to be appreciated; yearning to be recognised.
Are we going to allow our beauteous souls input into our lives, or will we refuse? The choice is always ours.
