I recently visited a zoo and spent a few hours looking at birds in cages.  There were cages of all sizes.  The birds appeared to be healthy and well-fed, but somehow what I saw didn't seem even remotely right.  I felt like I was looking at a maximum security bird prison in which all inmates were serving a life sentence without hope of parole.

I think that birds need more than food, water, and limited space.  They need freedom to soar on the updrafts and to allow their instincts to show them the way.  I can't believe that Jailbirds are happy birds; they just were not designed to live in cages.  If I don't like living in a cage, I can't imagine why a bird would like it either.

I also wasn't designed to live in a cage.  That's one reason I enjoy watching birds in free flight.   They demonstrate unfettered freedom that inspires me to spread my wings and fly.  The problem is that I spend too much time building golden cages when I should be out soaring in total freedom.

Birds have an excuse.  They didn't choose their golden cages.  They were captured, trained, and tamed to tolerate their jailbird existence.

I, on the other hand, don't have an excuse.  When I was born into this world, I was given the freedom of choice.  If I end up living in a cage, it's because I decided to live there, and I have no one to blame but myself. 

Since I returned to "uncivilization", I met hundreds of people living in golden cages.  How do I know that?  It's simple.  They are doing work that they hate so they can pay for a lifestyle that is driving them crazy.  Their cages come in all different shapes and sizes.  They are running on treadmills in Nowhere Land, and most important of all, they are not living their dreams.

Take a look at the eagle at the top of this page.  Imagine what his life would be like if you put him in a cage.  Would he be happy?

Living in golden cages is not for the birds, and it's not for me.  I've learned my lesson.  Good-bye golden cage, hello freedom.  No more golden cages for me.
