Butterfly Reflections

 

Sometimes we forget the long hard struggle that is required to break free from our chrysalis. Honoring this struggle demands patience, persistence, discipline and love with great respect for nature and all beings.

 

We forget that we need the sun and rain;

If we are to live and to thrive.

 

We forget that we need the plants and trees;

If we are to live and to thrive.

 

We forget that we need the birds and bees;

If we are to live and to thrive.

 

We get so distracted in the details of the process that we forget

to step aside

to observe

a joy this process brings to other beings with awareness,

who recognize the struggle

and see the beauty

that we are and they are.

 

We forget that we are all one.

 

Spread your wings.
