Humans transform very much like the butterfly. The metamorphosis of the butterfly from caterpillar, to cocoon, to butterfly is like the stages of human life from infancy to childhood to adolescence to adulthood. This transformation is as natural as that of the butterfly.
Spiritually, we can experience a metamorphosis, as well. This is something that has to be wanted and allowed. Immersing yourself in teachings from spiritual teachers is one way to consciously evolve or transform. Practicing the teachings furthers the process. The regular practice of meditation helps you to get in touch with your higher self. You can receive guidance and messages during meditation.
Some change is out of our control. Aging, for instance, is inevitable as long as we are alive. Time stands still for no one. Change should not be feared, but rather anticipated. Think of the great improvements in yourself that can be made through change.
Look at your life and find ways to make changes that will aid in your metamorphosis. Be mindful, meditate, and practice the teachings of spiritual teachers. After all, the great spiritual teachers don’t possess the peace, patience and knowledge they possess by accident. It is developed by practice, dedication and allowance of metamorphosis of their soul.
