AGILA by Marither

In the Animalia Kingdom, Agila was born on a crevice with  other chicks of Morphnus and Harpia. They have the most amazing nest that was ever built that other birds look up to.

The chicks were trained to master the art of flying as they were thrown out of the nest. Agila had developed hatred towards her parents as she had lots of injuries from the training. She couldn’t understand the reason behind the torture of the training as her anger made her become defiant and stubborn.

For Morphnus & Harpia, as parents, they thought that their chicks would just understand as they get older and that providing them with an amazing nest and food are enough. They didn’t know that their chicks need to feel their love and care as they learn to fly and not just throw them out of the nest. They were rough and authoritative toward their chicks that  lead to injuries and  trauma. For the parents, physical strength is enough to survive, but they are not aware that the affective side of their chicks is more important.

After several months, Agila learned to fly and  soared high as she left her family. She met Jefferyi who mastered the art of picking the twigs from Agila. They have a lot in common. They both love to eat fresh preys and the storm.  Jefferyi  wanted to meet Agila’s parents, But Agila was firm of her decision of not going back home.

When they reached 40, they pluck out every feather on their body until they were completely bare. They stayed far away on the rocks as they have grown new feathers, then she realized that Jefferyi was right. She went back home with Jefferyi, she realized that her parents love her, she wanted to tell them how much she loves them and would like to apologize for what she has done, but it was too late, because they died while looking for her.

MORAL LESSONS: We are like eagles, as what Dr. Myles Monroe has stated on her 7 Principles of an Eagle: 1. Birds of a feather flock together. 2. No matter the obstacle, the eagle will not move his focus from the prey until he grabs it. 3. Steer clear of outdated and old information. Do your research well always. 4. We can use the storms of our lives (obstacles, trouble, etc) to rise to greater heights. Achievers relish challenges and use them profitably. 5. Whether in private life or in business, one should test commitment of people intended for partnership. 6. The people who love us do not let us languish in sloth but push us hard to grow and prosper. Even in their seemingly bad actions they have good intentions for us. 7. We occasionally need to shed off old habits & items that burden us without adding to our lives…

GALLUS by Marither

_____________________________________________________________________________________________________

Somewhere in Northern China, there’s a town called Shochet, a hopeless place for birds. Once there was a cockerel named Gallus who wanted to be like his dad who was a famous cock fighter. After the death of his dad in the cockpit, all the cockerels were frightened and discouraged to join the Hotspur (a club for cock fighters), except for Gallus, who was brave enough to persistently practice and prepare himself to join the club.  For him, he preferred to die as a cock fighter than be placed in a cage for poultry.

Gallus tried to convince his fellow cockerels to join the Hotspur Club because it is the only way to free themselves. But all of them were weak, hopeless, lazy and have prepared themselves for poultry.  Gallus did not get discouraged, but instead, he persevered to join the club.

After days of hard work, practice, discipline, determination and patience, his skills were noticed and was invited to join the Hotspur Club. He couldn’t believe he had made it. His family and friends were still pessimist and told him that: whether we like it or not, we’ll all die. Gallus made them realize that there’s still hope in the town of Shochet. That, yes we’ll all die, but we have the choice to live longer, stronger and meaningful. “It’s not how you die, but it’s how you live.”

MORAL LESSONS: Have faith in yourself and be optimistic. Determination, patience and hard work are needed to attain your goals and objectives successfully. Life is too short to worry on death/problems, so live life to the fullest.

ARGUS by Marither

______________________________________________________________________________________________________

Somewhere in India, there was a peacock named Argus, famous for having stunning plumage.  He was known to be sociable, smart, cocky and loud. He was fond of showing off his plumage to attract peahens.

Hera is the exact opposite of Argus, a peahen with dull plumage. She was genuine, conscientious, clever, with a very clear vision that can see even the details, but shy because of her plumage.

One day, Hera was lost in the forest when she heard an infuriating crow that lead her to meet Argus. She was annoyed of his crow, but he has an amazing plumage. She hates him because of his appalling crow at first but she started to like him every time she sees his colorful plumage. But they can’t stand being together because of their differences. She told him that they can never be together because she can never be deaf not to hear his awful crow, while he can never be blind not to see her dull plumage. Their criticisms to each other lead offensive. Due to friction, they part ways in the forest.

Hera was lost in the forest. Argus has found her, guided her back to him and helped her reach home safely. They were both determined to reach home. While they were walking, Argus controlled to crow, and Hera controlled herself from criticizing. They can’t believe that they could somehow stand to be together just to reach a common goal….to be back home safely. They realized that even if they are too opposite and could hate each other, they can live symbiotically in achieving a certain goal, which requires patience, understanding & perseverance.


MORAL LESSONS:    Respect the weaknesses of others.  Each has its own.  Your strengths could be the weaknesses of the other, and your weaknesses can also be the strengths of the other. Use your strength to help others, instead of hitting their weaknesses. If we’ll let our individual differences rule, we’ll never reach our common goal.

*****

In a white piggy place, there was a town called “Spick-and-Span”, the cleanest place of all, because all the pigs eat vegetables even they are omnivorous. Nobody was allowed to eat meat to preserve the cleanliness of their town because meat for them was considered as a “disgusting food”.

One day, a stubborn pig named Filthy was curious to eat the so called “disgusting food”. He learned to like it. He has acquired a taste for meat. Until, their town started to smell awful. When they searched for the cause of the disgusting smell it came from Filthy.

For punishment, he was placed in a cage for several days until he himself realized how disgusting his fart & putty were because of eating meat. After that, he promised himself that he will never eat the ”disgusting food” again.
