Teachings of the Eagle Feather, Part 32: A Teaching of the Hawk


Namebini-giizis (Suckerfish Moon)/Makwa-giizis (Bear Moon), February 28, 2022


 


 

A spirit grandfather who soars high in the sky, a natural born leader known for his clear mind and sharp vision, Gekek the Hawk can always be looked upon for clear judgment in difficult or complicated situations.


We, as human beings, tend to cloud, or suffocate, our mind with many emotions, opinions, and options. This overload of stimulants causes distraction and decision fatigue, which in turn leaves our mind drained and we find ourselves paralyzed - we cannot take the right decisions.


The hawk teaches us that we must have a mental clarity before taking important, possibly life-changing, decisions. Hawk teaches us not to wait for "the right time and moment." The right moment is NOW. If you decide to wait for the right moment, this is where things slip out of hands. If you are confused about what is the right decision, TAKE IT and - now this is very important - DO WHATEVER IT IS WITHIN YOUR POWER to make it RIGHT. Without a clouded mind filled with negative emotions and a myriad of options that will only continue to confuse you and block any real progress.


Be like the hawk. Do not wait too long make the right decision. Soar high and stay your compassionate self - a person with a big heart and attributed with the perceptiveness, loyalty, honesty, and directness of the hawk.

The hawk encourages us to suspend the habit of mental and emotional overload and distraction, and become more aware of the present moment. Be like the hawk. Quick and fearless. And do not be afraid of what others (family, friends, colleagues, competitors, enemies) think, and do not be afraid that a life-changing decision makes you look arrogant in the eyes of those who do not approve of your decision.


Hawks, as decision makers, even when they make decisions that others will frown on, “soar” in their ability to remain compassionate and maintain passion and fire in their actions and in relationships.


Be like the hawk. Do not wait too long make the right decision. Soar high and stay your compassionate self - a person with a big heart and attributed with the perceptiveness, loyalty, honesty, and directness of the hawk.
