There's an old story of two caterpillars who spy a butterfly overhead.
One quickly turns to the other and says, "You'll never get me up in one of those things.”
Surely at some point, we've all experienced resistance to what I call "the better version of ourselves." The dichotomy of life is that there's a massive part of us that so desperately wants to fly, to experience freedom and the full expansion of individual expression — however, the flip side of the coin is us wanting to be comfortable in our uncomfortableness. They say that misery loves company, but why would we consciously choose to wallow in misery unless we're looking for someone to validate our story of the "ain't it awful" or "poor me" syndrome? I mean, doesn't it make more sense to become the butterfly, which affords us the ability to move faster and more efficiently with a kaleidoscopic view from a higher vantage point?
Most of our issues stem from the subconscious mind, because as a general rule, the majority of us live by default, never stopping to take personal responsibility for what ails us. Eventually, it becomes "imperative to change our narrative" by ultimately leading us to take stock or inventory of who we are and what we believe. This evaluation process of the psyche becomes a prerequisite for the alchemized human to evolve spiritually. A maturation process takes place just like the caterpillar transforming into the cocoon phase. This is a stage where cosmic surgery ushers in a bit of wonder and a whole lot of potential growth.
*This is a place where real change takes place, and the evolution of the multidimensional person becomes a reality.
* This is a place where the unconscious becomes conscious.
* This is a place where old paradigms break down, and one's truth becomes exposed.
* And this is a place where a resurrection of our true essence becomes revealed!
It's important to note that putting feet on our prayers is essential for becoming the better version of who we are. This requires taking personal responsibility.
