Butterflies emerge from a cocoon having once lived as a caterpillar.   From a sluggish looking insect emerges a beautiful and free flying creature.  A butterfly is a wonderous thing in nature.  The metamorphosis that occurs is one of the most fascinating things in nature that even scientists are still at a loss to completely understand.  We too can live like butterflies.  Sometimes life can seem so sluggish and we don’t see the beauty that is coming to us.  Our plans seem to take a long time as we build and grow.  Just as the caterpillar spends time spinning a silken pod and it forms a pupal skin from which it will emerge as a butterfly after two weeks.

The reality is no matter how bad things may seem, the good and beauty of nature is always within us and ready to be set free.
