Owlish

An owl is a nocturnal bird of prey from the order Strigiformes. They are bestowed with such incredible qualities and features which craved us to become a strong-willed, perceptive and a great empathizer human and can guide us into exploring the unknowns about life.

Owls live within the darkness, which includes magic and mystery. It flies by night and has an uncanny ability to capture prey. Their eyes are specially adapted to easily detect movement and see any changes in every sight. Here, owl symbolized is to pierce through darkness to the other side that promises light. It serves as a guide to distance from the noise of life and engross our self in a soothing life. Moreover, it prompts us to open our eyes and honestly examine how things are.

Owls generally live alone but will seek each other out when it’s time to breed. The female will only mate with a male she truly trusts. Such selective response by female owl to find a potential mate should be inculcated by women. They should not only look for a lover but a friend who is supportive and trustworthy at the same moment. This evaluation will then incur a response of some sort from.

Owls have sound intuitive abilities and are quick to discern the real intentions behind other’s actions or motives. It serves as a mean for us to understand an act or practice of deceiving; concealment or distortion of the truth for misleading; fraud; cheating. Thus, the analysis of real or fake intention of others should not be neglected and can be undertaken with utmost importance.

Owls love to explore unknown territory and have a knack for all new things. Similarly, we should have a curious nature to explore new things. It’s always a great idea to engage the mind and learn something new. Forming a new habit keeps your brain sharp, healthy, and active. Alternatively, the Owl symbolizes to stay away from negativity and achieve calmness throughout the day. With this in mind, it cues us to listen carefully to our inner voice and strive for a better life. 

This bird has always continued to be a source of wisdom, spiritual and intellectual. Let us take a moment to become meditative and slow down our engagement in this hypocritical world of money, fame and power, where mental peace has got no significance. It’s time to discover ourselves by ignoring the past, evaluating our skills, feeling the love and hoping for a silver lining in every dark cloud with the sole intention to celebrate our life.

LET US BE AN OWL

    In the era that Minerva was supposedly real, the owl was indeed a bird of wisdom; and nowadays, it’s often referred to as such. Are you aware, however, that in the Middle Ages in Germany and The Netherlands, the owl was considered a stupid creature? If you find, in ancient literary works, a person called an owl, it’s an insult to his or her intelligence. Consider for example the book Till Eulenspiegel (translated into many languages, first published in 1527) where the main character’s behaviour is considered a mirror for the (often greedy) stupidity of the upper class. Consider also the Dutch word ‘uilskuiken’ (literally ‘owl’s chick’), which is a mild derogative term for ‘idiot’.

    Owls are lovely though.

    Of course we should be like owls. Despite so many characteristics, why are owls viewed with fear and suspicion? I wish we could look around like an owl, so we would know what our own people do after us. But like an owl, we should not spend nights without sleep, otherwise people will start thinking something else…..☺️
    nice post👌👌🙏
