Personal Transformation. Catepillar to Butterfly
It’s winter. I am feeling drawn to go deep inside, like a caterpillar feels drawn to spin a cocoon and close out the rest of the world. There seems to be a metamorphosis occurring that I do not quite understand. I need more peace and quiet. It is not acceptable to be so busy anymore. I have been having dreams indicating core transformation. In one dream, a house had been torn down to the framework, ready for a total make-over. In a second dream, an entire new house was in the process of being built, connecting it to an existing house by a breezeway.
I cannot tell you who I will be in 6 months. I just know I have to allow the change to occur. It is welling up from that place deep within me … that place that knows what it knows … without my conscious self yet knowing. Do you ever have this feeling?
My dear friend, Cindy Libert, MD, Holistic Integrative Medicine, sent me this quote by C.S. Lewis. It moved me to tears. Thank you, Cindy.
“Imagine yourself as a living house. God comes in to rebuild that house. At first, perhaps, you can understand what He is doing. He is getting the drains right and stopping the leaks in the roof and so on; you knew that those jobs needed doing and so you are not surprised. But presently He starts knocking the house about in a way that hurts abominably and does not seem to make any sense. What on earth is He up to? The explanation is that He is building quite a different house from the one you thought of – throwing out a new wing here, putting on an extra floor there, running up towers, making courtyards. You thought you were being made into a decent little cottage: but He is building a palace. He intends to come and live in it Himself.” – C.S. Lewis, Mere Christianity
