The book "World Peace: The Voice of a Mountain Bird," where this quote originates, tells the story of a small bird with the potential to change the world. But in order to do so, she has to break out of the same simple routine every bird falls into: eat, drink, raise chicks. It was written by Dr. Amit Ray, a spiritual master who focuses on peace and compassion and has written several books on personal enlightenment. "World Peace" uses metaphor to express a common sentiment in Ray’s work: Just like the bird that sits in its nest, we won’t truly blossom into who we are by staying in a place of safety. Only when we go outside our comfort zone are we able to spread our wings and fly to our full potential.
