“How does one become a butterfly” she asked pensively
“You must want to fly so much you are willing to give up being a caterpillar.”
“You mean die?”
“Yes and no,” he answered. “What looks like you will die, but what’s really you will still  live”
—–From Hope For The Flowers

Change is a difficult thing. Sometimes, when we decide to change ourselves, our beliefs, and our lives, it feels as though a part of us is dying. So it must be, as we leave the past behind us and set out on a new course and embrace the “Now”.

It is inevitable when we choose to let go, that we feel as though we are losing ourselves, losing site of who we “ARE”, yet we are not. We are simply letting go of who we used to be, and doing so, we free ourselves to embrace the endless possibilities of “NOW”.

The only way to free ourselves is to die to ourselves. It is part of the metamorphosis, part of the beautiful awakening.

Discovering this empowering secret, this secret that YOU create your reality,  this truth that the entirety of your life experience is of your own choosing,  is like being given a beautiful set of wings and the gift of flight.  We are no longer held back by our old beliefs in  victimization and powerlessness – we are free to fly.

Take up your wings and fly with me.

Well, I watched the special last night on the Discovery Channel. I must say, it was an interesting show, but I really wasn’t left with an opinion one way or the other.

Of course, I don’t hold a strong need to have the reality be one way or another. It makes no difference to me whether Jesus of Nazereth was buried in that tomb or not. Likewise, I have no investment or need for him to be unmarried and childless.

There will never be any way to prove the assertion that his tomb and bones were found, just as it will be impossible to prove it wasn’t him.

All in all, I found it interesting – but ultimately it had no impact on what I think or believe.

how about you? did you watch? what is your opinion?
