Bev explained to Dev that thinking outside the bird-feeder was not always comfortable.

However, there was much more to learn, and life was then full of wondrous adventure.

Dev asked Bev what she had learned from her travels by flying many thousands of miles.

“You see so much from a bird’s eye view,” reflected Bev, “You see that many beings on the earth have difficulties and challenges, but then, you also see the new horizons of hope and happiness. Of course sometimes, all you see is desert wilderness and things feel hopeless. “

“Sometimes,” continued Bev, “When I am flying over the Gobi Desert in India, or flying over the Sahara Desert in Africa, it feels so unbearably hot and my throat is so parched, and I am so hungry from flying, and then I long for the security and safety of the bird-feeder.”
