Analogy of a butterfly | Anas Ebrahem | Pulse | LinkedIn

Consider the analogy of a butterfly inside its cocoon. When you see the butterfly struggling, you are tempted to peel the cocoon off to free the butterfly so that it can fly away.
But what happens to a butterfly when it does not have the necessary struggle to free itself from its cocoon? Its wings are weak. The butterfly soon dies. The struggle makes the butterfly strong.
Think of yourself as a butterfly, locked in your cocoon. Your struggle gives you strength. Without the struggle, you will not be strong enough for the next phase of your life.
At times you may want someone else to resolve your issues for you, wishing for less on your plate. But, like the butterfly, if someone solves these issues for you, you will not grow strong enough to move into the next phase of your life.
The Earth plane is equivalent to the butterfly’s cocoon. This reality is designed to pull you down so that you have to struggle to get out of it. This struggle teaches you about who and what you are; what you can and cannot do.
The struggle is what pushes you further into your depths than you ever thought possible. The struggle forces you to examine your darkness when you finally realize that the light does not contain all of your answers.
The struggle is your path to freedom, whether you consciously recognize it or not.
The “dark forces” are only a magnification of a part of your own totality that you choose to ignore. When you deal with the darkest parts of Self, then the outer magnification is no longer necessary, fading away.
