What does it mean to have potential? Imagine you are the caterpillar and are within the cocoon awaiting your emergence as the butterfly.
It’s dark in here, lots of tension all around me, I can’t move very well, I feel suffocated and lost. No one is with me, I’m all alone and I don’t feel right, I feel small and all confined. I don’t know how I got here, I don’t know how I can get out. I guess I just have to wait for something to happen..
When will I emerge, when will I be free? Did I dream this up?
I wait and wonder. I am small now, all I know is this darkness, this limited state.
Yet, within me I am imagining what it would be like to have great wings that would take me from this place and I would become something wonderful.
I see it, I feel it. I can imagine myself opening up and suddenly bursting forth.
Suddenly the cocoon breaks and I emerge. I have transformed into something new, with beautiful wings.
I shake them out, and all at once, take flight. I am free!
I am able to fly and to go places. I am able to soar upon the wind and land on beautiful flowers. I feel the sun all around me.
The power and the energy within me was always there, as potential. Until I embrace the truth that I can set myself free and emerge as my true Self, I can imagine it. I dream about it. I know it’s possible, and I remember it from long before I made myself so small.
How do you know its possible? Because you came from there. You remember what its like to be free because you were free just a moment before you came into the body. And you can be free again, when you choose to be. Love is all around you. You are free when you decide you’ve had enough of being bound.
You have been struggling against this love, this life within you. All you have to do now is to embrace it. Allow your true nature to be revealed. It’s much simpler than you think. Stop the struggle. Let yourself relax into the recognition that you have always been you. You have been the caterpillar and the cocoon and…when you decide, the butterfly.
Your spirit is that butterfly and it is awaiting your decision.Once matured, it is inevitable, you will emerge as that spirit. Released from the cocoon, the potential, the body, you rise and find your freedom.
Activate your will. This releases you from bondage. Will for freedom, for maturity, and for self-realization. It is matched by your Creator and your creative power within you. Potential is that which already is. Your wholeness is given you freely, your life is given you freely. Nothing can stop it. Not even death.
Birth of the new is upon us now it all its glory. The new resurrected you is now emerging when you embrace its newness. Love never dies or fades. It is always what you are made of and in spite of your denial, will always set you free.
