What happens to the caterpillar when it becomes a butterfly?
From our human perspective, we understand that it's life does not end, yet if the caterpillar applied our human definition of death to it's own circumstance, it would believe that it was going to die and fight with all it's strength against the process.
Death and our beliefs surrounding it provide the foundation for every expression of fear on our earth. It is the ultimate loss, the ultimate end. Or at least this is how we see it.
If we applied our understanding of the caterpillar's transition to our understanding of death, we could liberate ourselves ~ and our world ~ from the grip of fear.
Only when we open fully to life, and to the unconditional love that is there waiting for us, can we see death for what it truly is.
This is not the realm of the guru, this is the realm of the heart. It is only by direct personal experience that we can truly understand.
The time has come for us to set ourselves free from the grip of fear. It's as easy as asking to know Love and as hard as dying to our own idea of self. Sometimes faith demands of us that we set aside our own understanding and seek with our own hearts. The answer rarely comes as we expect, but it always comes.
If you are ready to leap into the light that is Life and open yourself to Love, the following (short- it's less than 10 minutes) meditation is for you. Enjoy!
