The Lesson of the Rabbit and the Eagle.Submitted by HuskerSkier on Sun, 03/02/2014 - 12:53
So there I was driving down the road when an eagle out hunting for food caught my eye. It was descending down on a rabbit that was hopping along a barbed wire fence. When the eagle would get within a threatening distance of the rabbit it would coolly hop underneath the fence creating a barrier and causing the eagle to abort the attack. The eagle would then reposition itself and attempt to attack the other side of the fence, but the rabbit would simply hop back to the other side almost as if it was amused by the situation. I witnessed about 4 or five attempts while I should have been watching the road. It was one of the coolest things I have seen though, completely worth it.
I think you can find lessons from observing nature and there is a Lesson in here somewhere, but I'm not for sure what it is so I thought I'd throw it out to the daily paul - the convergence of the greatest minds on the internet - what is the Lesson?
Right now I'm thinking that the lesson is if you (rabbit) understand your environment, even creations of control (the fence) can be used to keep you free from the never ending push for control from those who wish to rule (eagle).
