Buddha’s Story of the Butterfly
Once upon a time, someone found the chrysalis of a butterfly. Soon a small opening appeared. The person sat & watched the butterfly for hours as it struggled to squeeze its body through the tiny hole. Then it stopped unable to go any further. Deciding to help the butterfly, a pair of scissors were used to snip off the end of the cocoon. The butterfly then emerged easily, but it had a swollen body & shriveled wings. The person continued to watch it, expecting that at any moment the wings would enlarge & expand enough to support the body in flight. It did not happen. In fact, the butterfly spent the rest of its life crawling around like a caterpillar. It was never able to fly. What the person in kindness & haste did not understand: The butterfly’s struggle to get through the restricting cocoon was a way of forcing the fluid from the body into the wings so that it would be ready for flight once it emerged. Sometimes struggles are exactly what we need in our lives. Going through life without obstacles to overcome would cripple us. We would not become as strong as we could nor fly as happily as we might. So if we struggle, rather than asking someone or something to remove everything we dislike, it will be to our benefit for a long time to come.
