I went for a friend’s daughter’s birthday party at their farm yesterday and was shocked to learn that birds ( e.g Turkey, chickens etc..) but in this case turkeys, when hungry will instantly turn cannibal and attack the weak bird (weak implies: the bird has a deformity; inability to stand it’s ground or fight when it needs to). It made me sad but also gave me a new understanding of human behaviour and the order of life. I wish I had taken a picture of the weak turkey but I found one that looked like it on the Internet. My friend has had to remove it from the group for it’s own safety.
At the same friend’s farm, I also got to know about a duck who laid eggs but refuses to sit on it so that they hatch. She would rather sit beside the male duck or far away from the eggs. It is the male duck that tries to sit on the eggs. Sometimes the duck pushes the eggs away from their nest into awkward corners of the bird house like she is trying to get rid of them leaving them in danger. Doesn’t this also mimic the human behaviour as well? So, we see this behaviour in nature, doesn’t that make it natural? Not good, not bad, just is…
Now, understanding there are these behaviours in nature and in us, to keep the balance of life, some of us are called to be protectors of life while some of us will destroy. It is in our DNA. So everyone must ‘live their purpose’ to the fullest so that the balance of life is maintained….
