CONCLUSION:

There was a young man that attended school in a large north-eastern city. In his studies he

fell in love with EAGLES. He read everything he could about eagles. He watched documentaries

about eagles and the more he studied the more he loved EAGLES.

He promised himself when he graduated college he would travel out west to OBSERVE THE

EAGLES IN NATURE.

He found a job teaching and saved his money all year. Summer came and he booked a flight to

the area where EAGLES COULD BE FOUND. He rented a Jeep, took his camping gear and

away he went in his search of EAGLE WATCHING. He talked to locals and found a good

area and he set up his camp sight. He took his binoculars and telescope and set them up.

The next day the young man never saw any eagles. He traveled deeper into the cliff areas and

he observed up the mountains. Finally the second evening he spotted a beautiful eagle soaring

high in the sky. He watched where the eagle landed on the nest.

Before the sun came up the man had moved where he could watch the eagles. His

experience was much greater than he expected. Several days the young man watched the

nest and the flight patterns of the eagle. He focused in on the nest and saw baby eaglets in

their nest. One morning he was observing a male eagle soaring in the sky and to his amazement

the eagle went into a dive and with great speed the eagle dipped beneath the tree line. In a few

minutes the eagle was back soaring in the sky.

All of a sudden the beautiful young eagle started free falling from the sky. The eagle was limp.

It dropped from the sky at a high rate of speed.

The young man started hiking to the area where the eagle had fallen to it’s death.

When he arrived he found the dead eagle and attached to his chest was a dead WEASIL.

Seems the eagle had swooped to the ground and had captured a weasel in his sharp talons.

As the eagle started flying upwards the weasel had dug into the eagles chest and had

dug the eagles heart out while in mid-flight. AS THE EAGLE WAS CLINGING TO

THE WEASIL --- HE REFUSED TO LET GO. The eagle could have dropped the weasel

to it’s death and then re-captured it for food. Hanging on to the weasel was sure death for

the eagle.

The young teacher stood over the lifeless body of the eagle and cried:

EAGLE ALL YOU HAD TO DO WAS LET GO... ALL YOU HAD TO DO TO LIVE WAS

LET GO ...

MY FRIEND--- LOVE IS NOT EASILY PROVOKED. REAL LOVE DOES NOT PROVOKE

OTHERS. LET GO! PLEASE LET GO. A SHARP TONGUE AND MEAN WORDS WILL BRING

YOU DOWN. CLINGING TO BITTERNESS, ANGER AND HURT WILL DESTROY YOU---

AND YOUR FAMILY. THE HOTTER AND THE MORE HEATED THE DISAGREEMENT THE

CLOSER YOU COME TO AN EXPLOSIVE END OF DESTRUCTION.

THIS IS PART #5 OF LESSONS

EXPLORING UNDERSTANDING LOVE... I BEG YOU--- LET GO OF WHAT WILL KILL YOU.
