Why the caged bird sings

Posted in Philosophy, Psychology tagged , at 5:38 pm by randallbutisingh

The caged bird sings because after long incarceration, it begins to think that the cage is the right place for it to dwell.  It now refuses to beat it’s wings against its prison bars in trying to escape to the  freedom of sky and air and trees.  It has not now  to look for food or water as others of his kind has to do.  It is safe from the predator and other dangers without.

 

Man , likewise, trapped by the senses, begins to think, that he is this body and not the Spirit which he really is.  So he clings to his corruptible body for the temporary pleasure of the senses and does not want to leave it.  Until he realises he is not this body, till then will he remain in the suffering and pain which are inherent of the flesh, and be denied  the bliss of eternity.
