oh, little butterfly, don’t despair.
your long sleep in your cocoon
is preparing you
for the flight of your life!
We often want things to happen right away, or want to see immediate results in order to feel that something is happening. That is our mind, wanting to experience life according to its limited notions. But important transformations take time and are often silent, showing their fruit in the most unexpected fashion.
Patience and deep awareness are necessary. Inner transformation is never accompanied by fireworks.
(The butterfly’s chrysalis period last up to 14 days! Most butterflies live 1 or 2 weeks in the adult stage.)
