Tell me, what else should I have done?
Doesn't everything die at last, and too soon?
Tell me, what is it you plan to do
with your one wild and precious life?

—Mary Oliver – The Summer Day

 

 

 

A yellow butterfly came across a gray haired caterpillar.

The caterpillar asked, “How do you become a butterfly?”

“You must want to fly so much, that you are willing to give up being a caterpillar,” said the butterfly.

“You mean to die?” asked the caterpillar.

“Yes and No.  What looks like you, what looks familiar and comfortable to you will die, but what’s really you, the authentic you; will still live,” said the butterfly.

‘When the heart waits.’ Sue Monk Kidd

 

 

What are we willing to give up that feels comfortable and familiar to us in life? 

Are we willing to step forward into the unknown? 

Do we trust in life to support our authentic soul purpose?

This is the time to ask these questions.

This is the time, to let go, trust and discover who we really are!

 

 

‘We may worry about death

but what hurts the most,

is to live without tasting the

water of its own essence.’

  1. Beautiful, dear Karen. I just finished reading When the Heart Waits. This transformation theme has been very much with me lately. Thank you for this wonderful addition. 🙏🏻💕

  2. So frightening to step off the edge and into the void, trusting that somehow you will land on solid ground if you are but willing to take the risk. An ongoing struggle, I must confess… xo
