After some days a caterpillar breaks open the shell and sheds the egg. What does the caterpillar do once out of the egg? It eats! With a veracious appetite, it consumes mass quantities of food as its whole job now is to grow. Likewise, when our thought (egg) develops to the caterpillar (growing) stage, we must feed it with all of the knowledge and training that we can possibly acquire. We eat knowledge and devour training. We read books, take classes, attend seminars, study, study and study some more. Just like that little caterpillar, as we eat, we grow, and we gain strength.
When the caterpillar has gained sufficient size and strength, it spins a cocoon all around itself where it will incubate safely for a while, secure from any outside harm or influence. While in the cocoon stage, the caterpillar undergoes a major transformation and a metamorphosis occurs. It becomes something completely new and different as everything in its life up to this point blends together to form the final result. Our dream develops in us the same way. All our gifts, talents, desires, knowledge and training come into play to make us totally new and prepared for the manifestation of our dream.
We know what comes next. The gossamer butterfly, long known as the symbol of resurrection, emerges from its temporary cocoon-home and gracefully wafts it way heavenward. The development of our dream is like that as it moves from the first thought (egg) to the final realization (butterfly). We hear, we learn, we transform and then we emerge. It is true in the physical and in the spiritual, in the temporal and in the eternal. So, let’s meditate on the egg and then gorge ourselves on the things that will bring about the dream. After a period of incubation our dream will become a reality. It is God’s design.
