T is for Transformation
Self-transformation is not just about changing yourself. It means shifting yourself to a completely new dimension of experience and perception.
An tiny egg turns into larva which then turns into a caterpillar, before finally, transforming into a beautiful butterfly, so too a human being can transform from ugly to beautiful.
The butterfly is a perfect metaphor for the ego. We can transform our ego from the ugly caterpillar that is leeching onto its existence, scared by what it see’s and continuously squirming to and fro in an effort to get ahead, yet barley making any progress.
We can transform that slow repetitive, predictable and agonizing route into a multi-dimensional and multi-directional, stunningly majestic butterfly.
Once the metamorphosis is completed in the fourth stage, a butterfly breaks out of the chrysalis and upon its own strength it emerges to explore new opportunities.
Opportunities that were previously unseen to the lowly caterpillar become visible. This beautifully transformed creature not only has a new life but it is also able to explore new dimensions of time and space once thought unfathomable.
From a fresh vantage point the butterfly can travel far across the planet migrating the globe to witness the Universe beyond the scope of a caterpillar whose entire life is bound to a couple of trees in a park. Become beautiful, become a butterfly.
