BUTTERFLY SERVICE –
Two yellow Monarch Butterflies dance upon the breeze near a pool, elegantly chasing one another from here to there. They are not trying to be anything more than friends, or mates, doing what they do fluttering their wings and allowing the wind to carry them wherever it shall take them. Yet their beauty inspires onlookers. How can it be that this would capture a human’s attention, when the human mind seems to constantly drift from drama to drama or from material desire to desire?
You see, that’s just it. The simple act of the butterflies being butterflies has the effect of mesmerizing appreciators into meditation. This brings the perceiver back to basics in the simplicity of who they are and what they are doing. The is the service of simplicity… doing what you do, being who you are, because it is simple and easy. In so doing, you emanate a beauty far beyond words for others to capture a moment of that grace from your simple gestures of being.
In those moments, you are not aspiring to own a larger home, or bigger car, or purchasing the newest technological gadgets. You are just being you. They say that a rose couldn’t bless you with its scent if it were trying to be a rock star. Why? Because that is not the essence and gift of the rose.
So just for a minute, try appreciating who you really are, if you know, and attempt sitting with that for a moment and enjoying it the way others in your life do. If you don’t know who you are, try sitting with, “Who am I?” for a moment. Both of those meditations will bring you so deep into a place where the cars, the houses, and the technology won’t even matter. It is there where the true gift of being human lies, even if for a minute you need to be reminded of this by the service of the butterflies.
With so much love in my heart for you,
