T is for Transformation
Self-transformation is not just about changing yourself. It means shifting yourself to an entirely new dimension of experience and perception.
A tiny egg turns into a larva, turning into a caterpillar before finally transforming into a beautiful butterfly. Likewise, a human being can also change from ugly to beautiful.
The butterfly is a perfect metaphor for the ego. We can transform our ego from the ugly caterpillar leeching onto its existence, scared by what it sees and continuously squirming to and fro to get ahead, yet barely making any progress.
We can transform that slow, repetitive, predictable and agonizing route into a multi-dimensional, 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 can also explore new dimensions of time and space once thought unfathomable.
From a new vantage point, the butterfly can travel far across the planet 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.
