Always Be the Butterfly

Both moths and butterflies are drawn to the light. However, they both react differently to alternate shades of it. The moth prefers the moon and detests the sun, while the butterfly loves the sun and detests the moon. If our physical compositions are made to emulate the universe, then it makes sense for some of us to have more light or darkness inside our hearts than others or that one is drawn closer to the sun versus the moon. As seen by nature, our hearts too respond differently to certain vibrations and colors of light, good (the sun) or evil (the moon). It is normal for someone to perceive bad light as good, or good light as bad, depending on the intensity of truth/light in their own personal hearts. So, even though we all look the same on the surface, our internal chemistries are different. The astrology of our birth, how we were raised, our education, and personal experiences have a lot to do with our personal shading. All these factors determine the strength of your conscience, and it is your conscience that will dictate your angle of perception.

If everybody is looking at the same light bulb, the unique composition of an individual will dictate how each person will interpret and see things. Some people will only see things with their left eye (mind/moon), while others will use only their right (heart/sun). Some people are completely void of light and repel it immediately altogether. For instance, a beetle will chase after an opening of light, while a cockroach will scatter at the first sight of it. How are we different from insects? Nobody is purely good or purely evil. Most of us are in-between. There are moths that explore the day and butterflies that play at night. Polarity is an integral part of nature -- human or not human.

I believe that if there is a huge chunk of white/truth in you, you will be drawn mostly to truth. If there is a lot of black/ego in you, you will naturally migrate to darkness/ego. We can't change our natural compositions or our attraction to certain lighting, but we can slowly change our angle of perception. Anyone can work on balancing their inner lighting simply by adjusting their outer lenses. All you have to do is learn to use your heart before your mind to see things. There is no light greater than truth, and it shines at the heart of all creation. Be like a butterfly and celebrate it every day. It is inside you. Be aware of it so it can cultivate it to grow stronger and bigger. -- Suzy Kassem
