What a Fantasy – to feast to our hearts content, wrap ourselves in a warm cocoon, fall into a deep sleep and wake up to find ourselves transformed into a being of delicate beauty with wings to fly wherever we choose.
Nothing is really that simple. Firstly, the earthbound caterpillar is driven by need, insatiable hunger. It is not free until it has changed from this caterpillar phase. If we are prepared to completely change from our insatiable ‘needs’ we are all capable of metamorphosising into beautiful beings of light.
It is really letting go of your old self, and dying metaphorically, that the new you can come truly into the light. This is what Jesus meant when he said we must all be born again.
