AJC 2011 Itinerary 17: Verb: CYCLE

AJC 2011 Itinerary 17: Verb: CYCLE

Or “Embrace the Goo”

The Butterfly is often depicted as a symbol of Spiritual Transition, going from a seeming ‘death’ to a glorious new Life form.

..” Before a caterpillar can become a butterfly, it must become goo.
Yes, goo.
Within the cocoon, the form of the caterpillar totally dissolves into a liquid that is rich with nutrients and potential.
It's super goo.

From this super goo, the butterfly is formed.
Aside from the goo there are, imaginal cells.
These cells contain the image, the genetic template of the butterfly.
The goo feeds these imaginal cells and as the goo is digested, it transforms into a butterfly.

Only by letting go of the old forms can you make space for something new to be born.
In spiritual literature. the goo, is called the dark night of the soul.
If you're longing to fly, to deepen your life, to expand your horizon of awareness - embrace the goo…”
Excerpted from the March 04/11 newsletter produced by the wonderful folks at Wisdom Heart. to whom I give a Grateful Thank You for continuing to inspire me (especially when I'm stuck in the 'goo'. lol)

  1. You've given me a whole new appreciation for goo! There's no goo like caterpillar goo! Great collage, too.


Here under the Sheltering Palm, may you find parchment, fresh quill and ink. Scrawl a note and leave it there for me to find. Thank you and a Blessed Journey to you also.
