What I Learned From Watching Ducks

by Janet Eileene,

One particular day while struggling with a major life decision that would require moving in a new direction, taking risks and defining new paths, the answer that was received came in the form of a female duck.

My favorite place to get answers and quiet the mind is walking in Nature. There is a great trail near my house along a creek that flows into a river. The mountain views, the water and brisk walk provide a walking meditation for me. If my thoughts are stuck or haven’t been able to find answers, quite often a rambling walk will clear my mind enough to get results.

White standing on the river bank watching the ducks. Two ducks, a male and a female floated up to where the river got shallow over the rocks. They could not continue to float down the river. They swam back a ways and then came back to the spot where they couldn’t float down any further. They did this a few times, floating in circles and then back up to the same spot.

Finally, the male duck decided to walk over the 8 feet of rocks. He slipped and splashed on down and inwardly I gave an ooh and ouch for him as he went on down and made it to the pool of water at the end of the rocks. He then swam on down to where the other ducks had gathered at the edge of the river.

The female duck, well there really is no other word for it, was dithered. She swam up to the shallow rocks then went in a circle back up the river around 6 feet, then she swam up to where the male duck had walked down and then floated back in a circle. Over and over she went back and forth, looking at it and then swimming away. The male duck was quacking at her to “come on” (yes I speak duck), and urging her to just do it.

This continued for some time and as I watched I had to wonder if she was going to follow the male down the rocks at all. I finally decided to turn around and head back the trail when all of a sudden the female duck let out a loud quack and took off flying. She very smoothly landed with a glide next to her mate. I started laughing and laughed most of the way back to my car. The female duck gave me the answer to what I was seeking that day.

We do not have to do it the traditional male’s way or the hard way. The ancient female wisdom is powerful and here for us now and very different from the male’s way. We DO NOT have to follow where the male leads. We do not have to struggle to follow what does not work for us to be successful. The female duck showed me we don’t have to do it the hard painful way.

We have to think outside of the box to embrace and remember new ways of being and doing. We can choose not to follow our old mental programming and male dominated methods. We can find our wings and fly over the obstacle and end up exactly where we want to be! Quack Quack.

In Loving Light!
