Butterfly, the epitome of change, the beauty of evolution and its connection with flowers and seeding and germination. The gentleness of it as well as the joy and the playfulness with which it is moving the air might be an example for all of us.

Going about it’s business with the flow of the moment, on the flow of the air and together with the flow-er that it is visiting.

When being touched by a butterfly you feel the endlessness of the universe, at least that is my experience while I was visited by one of this species the other day when it sat for a couple minutes right on my heart. Nothing else was important that just this fragile being on my heart connecting with the beating of it and being peaceful where it was and how it was.

After the butterfly flew on to it’s next destination I felt completely One with everything. All the turmoil in my head from a couple of minutes earlier had left and I was at peace.

This kind of peace is more than just a quiet mind: it is a means of letting go and being able to live in the moment.  That little touch of nature can change the world (at least mine)!
