The Caterpillars and the Butterfly Empty

Received this link in a newsletter today. Thought you all might like it.

Quote :
There lived in a beautiful garden, large numbers of a particular creature who crawled about, eating the vegetation, perceiving themselves on the one hand as being superior to all the other creatures in the garden and yet on the other hand perceiving themselves as lowly, wretched and unworthy of being loved. They had many mythologies and squabbled endlessly about whose mythology was the only right one and this caused many rifts, divisions and schisms between them.

One day, a beautiful butterfly came into their presence, soaring in the sunlight, reflecting magnificent rainbow colors from his wings; so much so that he was seen as the Light of the World. Wherever he went he attracted followers, who marveled at his magnificence and the wonders he performed in their midst. He spoke in a way they had never heard before. He told them that not only was he the light but that they also were the light; that the wonders he performed, they also would perform - and even greater things - if only they could believe; that he was their brother and that they also were, in reality, beautiful butterflies, capable of soaring in the light and creating magnificent rainbow effects; that they need not concern themselves with all their mythologies and divisions and they would find all that would entirely suffice them was to love the Creator and to love each other as much as they loved themselves.

Reminds me of a delightful little allegory, Hope for the Flowers. I'll bet you all would enjoy it.

Many are still Catepillars and have not yet evolved. Some don't want to evolve. Why would they want to craw when they could fly?

Because their experience of life has been such that they do not believe they can.
