The Cocoon and The Butterfly
A man found a cocoon of a butterfly.
One day a small opening appeared.
He sat and watched the butterfly for several hours as it struggled to force its body through that little hole.
Then it seemed not to make any progress. It appeared as if it had gotten as far as it could and could go no farther.
The man decided to help the butterfly, so he took a pair of scissors and snipped off the remaining bit of cocoon.
The butterfly then emerged easily.
But it had a swollen body and small shrivelled wings.
The man continued to watch the butterfly, because he expected that at any moment the wings would enlarge and expand to be able to support the body, which would contract in time.
In fact, the butterfly spent the rest of its life crawling around with a swollen body and shrivelled wings.
It was never able to fly!
What the man in his kindness and haste did not understand.
Was that the restricting cocoon and the struggle required for the butterfly to get through the tiny opening.
Were nature’s way of forcing the fluid from the body of the butterfly into the wings so that it would be ready for flight once it achieved its freedom from the cocoon.
Sometimes, struggles are exactly what we need in our life.
If we were allowed to go through life without any obstacles…
it would cripple us.
We would not be as strong as what we could have been…
and we would never fly.
