In case there is truly some kind of worldwide invisible balance among things, wouldn’t it be great if every single act of kindness followed that rule, spreading around as a massive flood of cleansing water to bring humanity altogether by watering the barren tree of unselfish love. A domino of positive thinking carving the passage for all mankind, would be a great start to begin with.
Butterflies work more miracles than people, actually. Especially Monarch butterflies are said to migrate in a gigantic cluster that forms the shape of a huge butterfly, it seems like this attitude is triggered by their instinct of survival and preservation. Some might say it partially resembles to fish, as they too gather in huge formations to scare their hungry hunters away. If fish and butterflies unite for safety in numbers, surely humans have the same ability; but instead we divide ourselves into myriad groups that take precedence over our humanity. We need to relearn that in order to survive we have a far better chance if we are united as one and never detach from our species’ identity.
Butterflies enter, just like Persephone, their temporary, seemingly mortuary underworld, covering themselves into their cocoon only to evolve to their next best potential. If we want to reach their final state we also have to learn how to dive into our own mind cocoon to get rid of an old caterpillar-self towards the need of a soul transformation. Death to the old self-the worn out-the incomplete-the crawling one-is always the key. In order to move forward in flying colors, one must rejoice in the permanent ending of all negativity built within oneself, year after year, fight after fight, war after war.
Our kind is thirsty for power and independence but we are still close to nothing if we don’t prove consistent. If we don’t try to unite as one worldwide solid body curing our fatal “diseases”. Beauty -or success- of the individual won’t secure the long-term existence of our species.
