A caterpillar once looked up at a passing butterfly and yelled, "You'll never get me up in one of those things." Just as it is the caterpillar's destiny to one day change into the butterfly and be lifted from the bounds of the earth, so too are each of us in this life to be free. The butterfly flits through the air compelled by no pattern, conforming to no routine. When we release ourselves to inner freedom, our life becomes filled with a momentum and energy that lifts us from being bound by earthly cares and worries. What was a struggle on one level becomes a joyous adventure on another. Freedom gives our life meaning and happiness. When we feel like the caterpillar slowly crawling our way through this life, let's remember that our destiny is the freedom of the butterfly.
