Comfort is Uncomfortable...

Few days back I read an interesting article about the life of eagles. The eagle can live for up to seventy years, for that it has to make a hard decision. After 40 years, its talons become weak and cannot grab prey. Its long and sharp beak also becomes bent. Its thick feather sticks to chest making it difficult to fly freely. Then the eagle is left with only two options, either to die or pass through a painful process of changes, which lasts five months. When the eagle nears forty, it flies to the top of the mountains and sets up a nest. Then it strikes it beak against a rock and pulls it out. It waits for new beak to grow. Meanwhile, it starts plucking out its talons. New talons start growing. Then the eagle plucks its old and thick feathers. When the painful process is completed it has to wait for five months to recover. After this it will fly once again and enjoy the new birth. 

We see here in the above article that when the eagle voluntarily accepts the pains, then it is assured by the Lord to regain its original healthy position. In our life we always want to live in a comfortable zone and never want to take any discomforts or pains.The reality is that the more austerities we undergo when we are young, we would be more healthier in our old-age. Wishing for a comfortable life, we either use machines for grinding flour, washing clothes, cleaning the house or employ servants for the same and are dependent on vehicles even for travelling small distances. Such luxurious life makes us more and more lazy, so much so old-age becomes all the more difficult. All of us would have practically seen that our forefathers were all much healthier and lived a long life because they voluntarily accepted pains when they were young. But now-a-days because we are used to so much luxury right from childhood, even in 30s and 40s we are finding our lives very miserable.

"Always in our life we have to move from comfortable to uncomfortable zone, this will also keep you healthy for long in life. If you lead a sinful life in younger age don't expect a comfortable life in the old age."

You actually make it seem really easy together with your presentation but I in finding this matter to be actually something that I think I'd by no means understand. It seems too complex and very extensive for me. I am having a look ahead to your subsequent put up, I'll try to get the grasp of it!
