If we keep on thinking or doing the same things, the same way, then we usually get the same results. Sometimes there is a need to change the way that we do think or do things in order to get better results. Sometimes we need to change things or do some things differently simply to feel different or better. Sometimes we need to do things differently to explore our options or escape monotony. Sometimes we need to try a different way to see where it takes us and sometimes we have to try doing things a different way because there is more than one way and we have free will.
I woke up this morning thinking about butterflies for some reason. Maybe it was because of their beauty, their fragile beautiful wings and how they flutter them. Maybe it was because of their life cycle and their simplicity and that we all have a life cycle to honor. Maybe it was because butterflies are gentle, beautiful and never harm anyone. Maybe it was because they are never at war with themselves or others, have no hate, no anger and fly through life without discrimination.
Maybe it was a reminder that life is short and requires as much beauty to it as possible. Most of all it was a reminder that we as a people have the free will to wake up in the morning and select our own destination. And so I thought of the butterfly and leave you with this piece called :
The Positive Butterfly
The caterpillar usually becomes a butterfly and once it becomes the butterfly
It can never become the caterpillar again.
The butterfly has no choice but to be a butterfly. The butterfly has but a short time to live .
Without complaint it simply flutters its wings anyway and flies around until its designated time.
In some ways we are like butterflies. We are a part of the universe and supposed
to add some beauty to life. We also have our own life cycle,
subject to time and age and to each our own end.
Unlike the caterpillar we have the gift of free will and a choice as to what we become.
Unlike the butterfly we have the choice of many destinations but there is
also the tendency to become something else, to become less than majestic,
less than the extra ordinary or phenomenal that was originally prescribed
or intended and to fly to an unworthy destination or one
that does not nourish the soul or truly compliment the true essence of who you are.
Be a positive butterfly, spread your wing, become the more majestic and
Find that destination that is you and that nourishes your metamorphosis. .
Be a positive butterfly and add some beauty to life, to your life and the life of others
You are no longer a caterpillar. You are like a beautiful butterfly with your own mind and
of free will to choose your own direction.
You have the choice to change your wings or the color of your wings.
Your metamorphosis is yours to control and you can have a positive effect
on the metamorphosis of others looking to you or at you as you
flutter your wings to wherever you want to be.
