Are you seeing butterflies in your life? Are you a butterfly? Butterflies are symbols of change. Through their metamorphosis from egg to caterpillar to chrysalis to butterfly, we see our own life cycle of struggle and change.
The caterpillar stage is where the worm-like body is crawling, much like a child crawling on the floor, except the floor is a leaf. At this stage, the skin is shed several times to accommodate its growing body because it constantly eats all day. Similarly, a child goes through several sizes of clothes as it grows. We have to crawl like a caterpillar and a child, learning our lessons in life. Although we don’t know what we will look like later, we still must crawl and learn. Through our lessons we work out our karma and gain our spirituality.
The transformative stage of the butterfly is the chrysalis. It is a pupa structure where inside the caterpillar tissues are broken down and reformed into an adult butterfly. Our transformation starts with being out of our comfort zone, stretching our perceptions and learning more about love and our relationship with God. This is life. Some say life is too hard, too much of a struggle. It’s important not to give up. Just when you think your lessons could not be any harder, you could have a butterfly moment, where everything falls gracefully into place. And now, you have the knowledge and wisdom to help others in their daily struggles, going through the same circumstances you were presented.
When the colorful adult emerges from it’s chrysalis, it waits until its wings are dry. Then the butterfly takes flight. Everything in your life, has brought you to this moment. All the struggles and trials, are not all for naught. Struggles strengthen us. God doesn’t give us more than we can handle. Everyone is searching for the truth. Truth is all about loving God and all that is. Don't give up, your butterfly moment is just around the corner.
Blessings and joy!
