Transformation happens in the chrysalis. The caterpillar changes itself into a butterfly. If the amount of time in the chrysalis is not perfect for this to happen, the insect can become very weak, not be able to fly or lay eggs or live a very long butterfly life. It must grow and change and push itself out into the world on it’s own. It cannot be forced. It cannot be coerced. It cannot be manipulated to fit the master plan of a butterfly life. It must go through the process.
Some caterpillars take 5-21 days and others can take up to two years. The environment must be perfect for that particular caterpillar to metamorphosis into the butterfly it is meant to be.
Same goes for us. If we do not go through a transformation process from childhood into adulthood so that we can BE who we are meant to be, it may not turn out so well. We may not be as strong as we need to be. Not as smart, not as compassionate, not as loving.
You can’t wish your way to be a grown up. There are things you must learn along the way. If you refuse to learn them you’ll have a difficult time holding down a job or even making friends. As you age, there are ways to act and like a child is not one of them.
It’s kind of like education. If you don’t learn everything you need to learn in Elementary school, you will not do well in Middle School. And if you don’t learn all those subjects and pass all those tests, well, you’ll have a really hard time in High School. And so on.
So with your emotional, mental and spiritual state of being as a child, you must learn all you can from books, workshops, people and grow into being an adult. Wherever you can learn something so you’re ready for the next phase of your life with passion and purpose. Stay in your childhood for 18-19 years and have a blast, and slowly as you break out of your Chrysalis, adulthood will be waiting for you.
