The Whisper of a Butterfly

“For once you have tasted flight you will walk the earth with your eyes turned skywards, for there you have been and there you will long to return.” – Leonardo da Vinci

“What the caterpillar calls the end of the world the master calls a butterfly.” - R Richard Bach

I have been seeing more butterflies lately, or perhaps I am noticing them more as they awaken me to be present in the moment. God whispers through butterflies, through a soft breeze and in the brilliant colors of fragrant wild flowers.  We need only be quiet to take notice and hear the roar of whispers that surround us, calling us deeper.

We so often believe the lies in the noise of this world and discount the silence. That’s what distractions are meant to do. To lead us away from our true north, to guide us down a path not of our own.

Break out of your cocoon and allow the transformation of the caterpillar to unfold. We are called to flight, to dance softly and gently in the sky. To release the bindings of the earth and taste heaven before our time.

“There is nothing in a caterpillar that tells you it's going to be a butterfly.” – R. Buckminster Fuller
