It's a chrysalis! Inside is a beautiful butterfly which is ready to come out into the world.
I think we humans are a bit like caterpillars and butterflies.
We like to spin ourselves a "cocoon" of beliefs and habits to guide and protect us. We start this process as children learning how to grow up, and we continue as adults building habits and beliefs to help us navigate through the world.
Sometimes these habits and beliefs serve us very well. But sometimes it is time to outgrow the old "cocoon," It is time to transform into another level of understanding and being.
By creating happier, less limiting beliefs, we can create happier lives.
