Becoming a butterfly

ending a caterpillar - begins a butterfly

ending a caterpillar - begins a butterfly

Last night I posted the following quote on facebook, many have replied and one really touched my heart.

 

“What the caterpillar calls the end of the world, the master calls a butterfly.”                                                                                              –  Richard Bach

 

Message from my good friend Lisa,

 

For the past 3 years, the butterflies come to my home.  There’s a live caterpillar making it’s cocoon on my front door right now!

 

This morning I stepped over a dead caterpillar on my stairs who gave up before he made it all the way to my balcony to dangle with the rest of the cocoons and emerge with wings.  I thought- how sad to give up so soon before becoming a butterfly.  If he only knew the miracle that was just around the corner he might have kept going…

I want to thank everyone for following my blog as we are all becoming butterflies in our own unique way.  It is a vulnerable but courageous process.  Only through this rebirth we could truly experience our divine radiance that has always been within us.  May we fly together, paint the world together, and enjoy love together.

 

Namaste

  1. I love Richard Bach and the quote you posted touched my core!

    “I thought- how sad to give up so soon before becoming a butterfly. If he only knew the miracle that was just around the corner he might have kept going…”

    So many give up right before the miracle is ready to unfold, manifest into material reality, or the shift occurs going from despair to joy. We look at the cocoon and think how confining, how ugly , and then, after the struggle of the birthing process, the beautiful butterfly appears.

    Thank you for this reminder to never give up!
    Namaste

  2. Hi Flo, It is a pleasure to reacquaint with you! You are right; my internal state determines how I receive and respond in any situation. Even in events beyond my control, I, depending on my state, can amplify or diminish the repercusions. I also ocean swim 5 evenings a week; I would like to join you. The ocean detoxifys my jumbled emotions. I remember going to a music concert at UCSD with you and your Father; I appreciated your inclusiveness. Thanks for the swing dance. All good magic and medicine to you, CHARON tel.619 563 3951
