"Without butterflies...few flowers"

Yesterday I told you about a book I really love. It’s illustrated like a children’s book but definitely is a book for adults who want to be what they were meant to be. The book is Hope for the Flowers by Trina Paulus. The word on Facebook is that there just might be a movie made of it. I hope so.

I certainly recommend you read the book yourself. It’s thoughtful and inspirational. And you’ll fall in love with the artwork as I did.

Yesterday I told you one passage I especially like. Here’s another of my favorite parts:

“Butterfly—that word,” she thought. “Tell me, sir, what is a butterfly?”

“It’s what you are meant to become. It flies with beautiful wings and joins the earth to heaven. It drinks only nectar from the flowers and carries the seeds of love from one flower to another.”

“Without butterflies, the world would soon have few flowers.”

Indeed. The world would soon have few flowers.

How are you carrying the seeds of love? How are you becoming all you were meant to be? What sort of transformations have you made in your life that call to mind the caterpillar to cocoon to butterfly process? Are you that beautiful butterfly you were meant to be?

Please share your comments with us. I’d love to hear your answers to those questions.
