|The lesson of the butterfly is to let go of old behavior and|
be reborn into the next phase of existence.
It is now that we acknowledge the cycles of nature, and the most important one of all -the cycle of life. Through this recognition we reconnect with Mother Earth, and move ourselves to the next phase of existence in harmony with her.
The ancient Egyptians celebrated the goddess Isis and her son Horus. The ancient Greeks celebrated the goddesses Demeter and Persephone. It's always been about cyclical activities and the renewal of life.
Now, even larger cycles of creation are being revealed, and it appears that we may be experiencing many cyclical changes in the weeks, months, and years ahead.
Astonishingly, not only the Mayan people singled out 2012 as a significant date for cyclical change. Similar prophecies come from the Hopi, Navajo, Cherokee, Apache, ancient Egyptians, Kabbalists, Essenes, Qero elders of Peru, Subsaharan Dogon tribe and the Australian Aborigines.
The cycle has turned, and familiar patterns are coming to an end. New patterns are starting to form, and our world is experiencing rebirth... again. However, there is no reason to fear coming changes.
The mark of your ignorance is the depth of your belief
in injustice and tragedy.
What the caterpillar calls the end of the world,
the Master calls the butterfly.
- Richard Bach
We are all reborn as butterflies in a new world, and for that, we rejoice.
