The old woman and the eagle

2016

by Idries Shah and Natasha Delmar

In this amusing story, an old woman encounters an eagle for the first time. Perplexed by its unfamiliar appearance, she decides to change it to suit her own ideas of what a bird should look like. Her efforts mirror a common pattern of human thought: altering the unfamiliar to make it acceptable. This tale is specially presented for children by the author and educator Idries Shah, who, for more than 30 years, collected stories from the Sufi tradition from oral and written sources. Told since ancient times throughout Central Asia and the Middle East, such tales are used to help foster greater mental flexibility and insight in people of all ages.. -- publisher
