"The Eagle Nature" as written by and Jason Gobel Paul Masvidal....
Learning, discerning, how to arrange
Thinking the haze will just not clear
Viewing, computing, our minds will stage
A vehicle inside we feel the eagle nature

Everchanging river flows high and low
Panoramic vision is undefined

For unfocused consciousness, the eagle nature
Precaution for a stream of risk, the eagle nature
It sees changes clear

A crystal goblet so fragile and dear
Needs fill one step at a time

Noting the fall of a sparrow
Attending the slightest scratch of flesh
Earthly ambitions weigh their share
The vastness of life, it doesn't care

A crystal goblet so fragile and dear
Needs fill one step at a time

Earthly ambitions wigh their share
The vastness of life does not care

    General CommentAccording to Paul Masvidal :

    "The concept of The Eagle Nature was taken from an interpretation of the great myth of Eros and Psyche. It is of Psyche's third task assigned to her by Aphrodite where she must fill a crystal goblet with water from the River Styx. Psyche realizes the difficulty of this and feels a bit overwhelmed, but an eagle of Zeus appears by magic and asks for the crystal goblet. It then flies to the center of the stream, lowers the goblet into the dangerous waters and fills it bringing it safely back to Psyche.

    The river symbolizes life and the current is fast and treacherous. If we are to approach too closely, one could easily be swept off and drowned. The task tells us how one must relate to the vastness of life, to do things one step at a time. Culture today says: if a little is good, more is better. Following this creates a life which is never fulfilling...while engaged in one rich experience we are looking about for another. There is no contentment because future plans are always intruding on the present. We must learn to live in the now. A little of quality, experienced in high consciousness, is sufficient. We can focus on one aspect of life, or one experience, concentrate on it, drink in it, and be satisfied...then move on to whatever may follow. Almost every person is overwhelmed by the too muchness of modern life, even on a day to day basis. That is the time for the eagle view and one goblet at-a-time mentality."
