Metamorphosis

The World has a Soul, a living vitality in all of its creatures, including the human being. It is through the human being that this Soul can manifest more of itself into the world.

Though we are intimately a part of this vast Spirit, we have forgotten our connection. Because of our forgetfulness, we have been able to build the vastness of civilization. But this forgetfulness no longer plays a vital part in the unfolding of Spirit, and so it must pass. It is like the cocoon which prepared the metamorphosis, but only by breaking through it may we call ourselves born anew.

You may ask what you need to do in order to tear from this cocoon? It is all you know, lost in its darkness you hold onto it, even though the cracks appear and the light shines through. You cower from it because you have yet to understand who you are.

When you do, the transformation will be rapid and quick, a falling away of the shell and into the daylight.

The moment you see beyond the fear of your world falling apart is the moment you will be able to step from your tomb, and its carcass shall be like the soil which your roots take hold. Soaking up the light.

Here is the one thing that cannot be given to you, the one thing that must be perceived directly. The outer world’s destruction is a symptom of your inner world.

When the outer and the inner are discerned for what they truly are, you are already free.

  1. Absolutely splendid and resplendent! The cocoon / plant analogy played out fully. I assume that you’ve read Joseph Chilton Pearce’s Crack In The Cosmic Egg ?

  2. Thanks!! I actually haven’t read Joseph Chilton, but not surprised this has been used before… seems deeply archetypal. :)

  3. “You may ask what you need to do in order to tear from this cocoon? It is all you know, lost in its darkness you hold onto it, even though the cracks appear and the light shines through. You cower from it because you have yet to understand who you are.”

    A wonderfully eloquent and clear explanation of this simple truth. Thank you for sharing.
    Here is a musical version of what you stated.

  4. You are a born poet my friend. Beautiful, and a wonderfully archetypal image to boot! Where did you get that from?

  5. @Niav~~ Thankyou for sharing your music! A musical equivalent for sure. Nice to meet you!

    @Benton Thank you brother… The art is from the Thoth Tarot Deck (I think). The card itself I believe is actually called “art.”
