Modern culture has us aim for goals as though they were steps and plateaus- that if you reach one milestone then you cannot go back to where you were without similar effort. The butterfly knows better. She knows that you can never really go back, because the experience has changed you and growth is inevitable. The Butterfly goes through many painful changes in its lifetime. Change and rolling with the punches are its symbolic specialty. Where has life taken you to bring you to this point? Do you see a pattern as you roll forward into the next stage? Your perspective is your power in this situation. Do not let yourself mindlessly drift from flower to flower without seeing the result of your pollination.
