It’s not all easy , but I think it’s all awesome.” ~Kris Langham
I am pretty certain if anyone sat down and told a caterpillar the work that it was going to take not only for it to transform into a butterfly but just being able to break free of the future environment that will keep them safe but will soon be the very thing that holds them back, that they would rethink the whole metamorphosis thing.
But then…maybe not. I think the guaranteed results of flying would be too much to resist. (There is a greater spiritual component here and I’m going to have to share it later I another post in the future.)
Transformation takes transition. Being able to fly is a right that comes from gaining power and strength from the struggle found in transition.
If a caterpillar never struggled to break free of its cocoon, the place that once was its protection while in transition, it would never have the strength to take to the skies.
There are dreams and greatness in each of us, but to see those dreams manifest there must be change and maturity, transformation in transition. We must gain strength through the struggle.
Change is never easy. It can actually be painful, but oh when you gain the fruits of the change and see your goal and dream take flight it is oh so AWESOME!
