You ruin your life by desensitizing yourself. We are all afraid to say too much, to feel too deeply, to let people know what they mean to us. Caring is not synonymous with crazy. Expressing to someone how special they are to you will make you vulnerable. There is no denying that. However, that is nothing to be ashamed of. There is something breathtakingly beautiful in the moments of smaller magic that occur when you strip down and are honest with those who are important to you. Let that girl know that she inspires you. Tell your mother you love her in front of your friends. Express, express, express. Open yourself up, do not harden yourself to the world, and be bold in who, and how you love. There is courage in that.
Nothing stays the same even in small ways change is happening. It just may seem that it is not because you are vibrating at a different space and tone. So from your perception nothing is changing. However on the inside tiny sparks are going on that are not notifiable to you because the outward hasn’t change yet. So you discount growth. Like a butterfly it first must eat the knowledge of the Earth then begin the chrysalis stage. None the less we are all transforming on some level. The person you are today is not the person you were yesterday and vice versa. So ease up and be gentle and celebrate your spirit and other people. Then and only then we can create a collective awareness of how we as people need to understand one another to a fine point of compassion and clarity. Not through assumption and ego. We must remain diligent and forth coming with love in all social acts towards others. If we are to see the world transformed; we first must do it in ourselves. By opening our hearts and changing our perception of each other removing labels, rules of how and what roles we play should look like. We will see our lives transformed and see more beauty then ever before present in the world. Call on the butterfly medicine to guide you through its stages of change. You are transformed.
