We watched as each caterpillar knew when the time was right to find good hooking up spot. Beginning the process and retreating within the chrysalis where it undergoes a transformation only to emerge reborn as a beautiful winged butterfly.
For me, butterflies bring hope, joy, creativity and the possibility of transformation we may be seeking within ourselves. We too can experience alteration when we retreat to our own cocoon and open ourselves to receiving the knowledge and magnificent miracle that life can bring. Butterflies are a reminder through its own short splendid and magical life that time moves quickly. The divine presence and magic in all of life are to embrace and tune into the needs to be enjoyed now in every moment, within every breath across all humanity…..time is short.
