The Cocoon

Originally Published 12/3/1998


A man found a cocoon of a butterfly.

One day a small opening appeared, he sat and watched
the butterfly for several hours as it struggled to force its
body through that little hole. Then it seemed to stop making
any progress. It appeared as if it had gotten as far as it
could and it could go no farther. Then the man decided to
help the butterfly, so he took a pair of scissors and snipped
off the remaining bit of the cocoon.

The butterfly then emerged easily.

But it had a swollen body and small, shriveled wings. The
man continued to watch the butterfly because he expected
that, at any moment, the wings would enlarge and expand
To be able to support the body, which would contract in time.
Neither happened! In fact, the butterfly spent the rest of its
life crawling around with a swollen body and shriveled wings.

It never was able to fly.

What the man in his kindness and haste did not understand
was that the restricting cocoon and the struggle required for
the butterfly to get through the tine opening were Spiritís way of
forcing fluid from the body of the butterfly into its wings so that
it would be ready for flight once it achieved its freedom from
the cocoon.

Sometimes struggles are exactly what we need in our life. If
Spirit allowed us to go through our life without any obstacles
(growth opportunities), it would cripple us. We would not be
as strong as what we could have been.

And we could never fly.

The magic is that you have choice and can choose your perception, choose how you think about the events and circumstances which you have created and manifested for your soulís growth. Only when you can see and accept where you are, is it possible to move forward to where you want to be. You are a pioneer, and your life is the adventure. You are the magician, and your Vision the new horizon ahead. You are the miracle whose destiny is to envision and dream forth our new world of love, peace, and abundance. And so we let it be.

With Blessings of love, light, affluence & bliss.
