No Hand but Wings

I discovered today why birds have no hands! Of course they won't have hands! Grab! that is what hands do, hold unto things! They can't hold unto something and fly, they have to be liberated from what is below, set themselves free. But yes they have feet, because they need to keep a touch with things, they need to be real, they need a place to rest indeed. Feet do not grab, do not hold unto things, feet simply rest.
Hearts, if you want to fly, do not grow hands! Have steady feet but extended your wings! Sing to the sun, the Son! Dance to the wind, the Wind! and aim to the high, the Highest! My heart learned this and to Him it will fly!
