A bird is a symbol of freedom, isn’t it? But are animals free?
Though birds fly freely in the sky, their freedom is strictly limited by laws of nature. They have to build nests, find food and reproduce. True freedom is different. According to Bahai teachings, there are two main components of human reality: one is from lower animal nature and one from higher nature.
To set ourselves free, we need to become mindful and attentive and develop our love for humanity. This way we can become even freer than a bird.Share:
