Its been my experience that  with really hard things I don’t truly change until the pain level gets high enough that I have to do something about it. When something becomes broken beyond repair – its unmanageable, too much to bear. As i experience what is happening in our country on all levels, it feels like so much brokenness. It feels unmanageable. And I try to remember Butterflies. 🦋

“The purpose of the life of every Butterfly is to set everything that was once known aside and to embrace an entire new way of being.”  transcendence is the symbolic meaning of the butterfly – even in transcending sorrow into nutrients.”

Can I take the sorrow and let it become nutrients for the soil of change? Can I hold the sorrow long enough to let it burn the old and use the ashes to cultivate the new? Can I be in the uncomfortable smallness of the cocoon long enough to allow it to enter deeply into my being and re-birth something new. I’d like to come out on the other side of the corona virus, the racial tension, and the economic downturn with a new set of eyes. A new way of living. With new wings.Taking the sorrow, pain and brokenness, and allowing it to burn and cultivate in me the ability to embrace an entirely new way of being the change I want to see in the world. The old ways will not work anymore – but the new is arising out of the ashes. #rebirth . #transformation . #butterflybtc
