Seeing the Quetzal in Others


The beautiful Quetzal, found in Mexico's cloud forests, is more than just a bird. Its vibrant green feathers and long tail make it stand out, but there's more to it than looks. In our ancient Mesoamerican cultures, it was a symbol of libertad y goodness.


Thinking about the Quetzal, we can appreciate the uniqueness of those we know and love, work with, like the Quetzal's special feathers. Their differences make life interesting, and just like the bird, we can appreciate their individuality.


The Quetzal lives in dense forests, and its elusive nature is a bit like figuring out who others are and what makes them special.


The bird's cultural importance also reminds us of the power of symbols. The lives of others, like the Quetzal's, are part of a bigger story, their story and journey, which connect can connect us and add meaning to our individual and collective lives.


Protecting the Quetzal means taking care of more than just a bird; it's preserving something important in Mexico's culture. It's also a reminder that we all have a role in acknowledging and appreciating the uniqueness of one other.


So, as we admire the Quetzal, let's see it as a reflection of the uniqueness of everyone we know and love, work with, and meet. Just like the bird flies through the forest, let's appreciate our individuality, our self-determinism, and goodness, knowing that our differences make our lives richer. In our diversity, life becomes more interesting and worthwhile.
