Dear Human,

You didn’t know it when you were born, but you too are a caterpillar. A tiny little thing, scooching around in your own skin and space, trying to figure out what to do and where to go, and even more grandly – why? You have been living your entire life thinking that your present condition is your one and only identity.

But caterpillars weren’t born to be just wiggly, hairy, insects, waiting to be a birds next meal, were they? Their true essence is and always has been that of a butterfly. Completely perfect and beautiful from the moment they come into existence. It isn’t less of a butterfly because it’s in the temporary caterpillar mode. And you are not any less the perfectly complete human being that you were born as, simply because you have been in the temporary awakening mode. Having navigated your early years of life through much harsh realities, escaping the pointy beaks that seem to want to gobble you up, you have adopted many beliefs and fears just by trying to figure out the best way to survive. But the day has come my beloveds, it’s time to start the transfiguration that you were designed to undergo. 

Your cocoon of hardships have been keeping you busy, reminding your magnificent spirit that you are indeed able to move through any crisis, issue, or uncomfortable circumstance and escape the perils of everyday living. Overcoming that which wishes to hold you captive is your transformational process. From uninformed, mentally asleep, and spiritually malnourished beginnings, you can now use your innate blueprints of rebirth to unfold so brilliantly into your whole being. 

Oh how beautiful you are when you awaken and begin to wrestle with life’s cocoon. When your sacred intention starts to rip away the webs that have entangled you for so long. To see you wiggle and strive to free yourself from the chains of fear, lies and deception, is like watching the sunset over the ocean or Halley’s Comet pass through outer space. How spectacular it is to know that you can present your magnificent self to the world as the person you were divinely designed to be. A most holy act of transmutation, of evolution, offered to the heavens from which you were formed. This metamorphosis is a ritual that you have been destined to perform. It is written in your genetic code, lying dormant, simply awaiting your awareness of its existence. 

How marvelous you are. How magnificent your ability to “unbecome” all that you no longer need. This is the real work. To shed your old skin and fly through this life with a new set of wings that outwardly look like what you inwardly are. You are the most amazing outcome of the cosmos that I have ever set my eyes on. 

Your Fellow Traveler,
