Do you have a butterfly muse?
So yesterday as I'm pulling into my driveway, the notion crosses my mind to check on my hyacinths.

Sure enough, all five have popped out already and gotten frostbitten :/ As I'm digging around to remove nearby rocks, I happen upon a hibernating caterpillar. I excitedly call my daughter over to see, who takes a peek but says not a peep. Interesting, I think, she witnesses not the stark beauty I see.

You see, my mother was well versed in butterflies, labyrinths, and other instances and imagery in life of the shamanic evolution we progress through as spiritual beings. Memories of her now have a tendency to bring out musings unto meaning, reasonings unto rhymes.

I'm brought back to a fascination of a species of butterfly in particular that spends not one but seven changings of seasons feeding. From the first break of spring, a caterpillar sets out on a singular enterprise - to gather energy and sustenance to feed it's coming metamorphosis. How perplexing this be, this one species, who risks all through seven winters, who bides longer than any others. In darkness surrenders time and time again, it's efforts through those summers spent but yet not penned.

Could it be, I start to see, the clarity in being, that of me. For patience is a virtue, within it a rainbow hue. All my life I've felt personified by the feline. It's apparent now, I've but played cat and mouse. Acting out what chases what's within.

Twenty-four years I slumbered in dark silence, nomming away the fruits of life as if they held no meaning. Of regret there is none, for the battle's won. No experience, knowledge, or creation I've made was ever lost nor will it ever fade. A flutter of heart is all that's needed to see reason for all prior cocoon been seeded.

Interesting Leary quote, for sure. Seems odd to me that what I feel I know is that there will never be an absolute 'who' that applies to me. Yet, I seem to know which boat it is I am within afloat.

Is it ever truly one's place to know where another is going? Seems in this regard, 'we' collectively would always seem lost as to where the 'we' is going hmm

Enjoyed the post very much Blue Hat, beautiful. Thank you.

Behind all the noise, a view of the transparency of our own true nature, a glimpse within.

A release of all the the influence of culture. To deeply ponder and surrender without the binds of our own making.
Very profound, the glimpse of the beauty of the flow .

Within every idea of who you are.
release every idea of who you are,

When I was a little girl I rescued a Monarch butterfly from a spider's web and it stuck around for three months and landed on my shoulder constantly when I was 7. Nobody believed it even my teacher at school until we had a field trip and my mother sent me to school with the butterfly and the teacher called after school to apologize because she said I'd been telling fibs. It was the most wonderful thing and a lesson that all creatures great and small appreciate mercy and help.

That's a wonderful, humbling tale. Thank you for sharing hf

A similar lesson I try to instill into my daughters in each moment it correlates that I catch is that life itself is what challenges our beliefs and not the other way around as most like to think that our beliefs shape the experience of life.

As you discovered, mercy and a helping hand is at times the only spark needed to experience the impossible :)

Heh, was surfing a bit to expand familiarity and came upon [link to mindunclouded.blogspot.com]

Interesting to note - that World Tree image in the link (which is actually a rather good read IMO despite it's being founded in media analyzation) - something quite similar came to me in a type of dreamscape long before I had ever heard of or researched sacred geometry :)

At first glimpse of a Kabbalistic Tree of Life, I immediately associated the two - yet it bothered me because I knew my vision held more substance than just the tree itself.

Luv butterfly's! They go through so much to become what they are, only to live such a short amount of time.

That resting caterpillar did give me hope that the blooms I've chosen will flutter sooner rather than later.
Will want to wish the whisperer witty enough to force the furry felines to leave alone the flutters.

Or I'll just be getting some epic cat herd chasing butterflies vids :D I have 2 outdoor cats, neighbor has 2 that use my roof and yards as their 2nd home/hunting ground. Now they're gathering up strays to come visit and make themselves at home anytime they want.

I come home to cat parties of 5+ furry bastards all hangin' out in front of my house. While the two girl cats inside are going insane trying to claw through the window to bust the party.

You see, one does not choose to become a crazy cat one - the crazy cats come to choose one. All these pussies are going to be such a cockblock...wtf...
