" I remember one morning when I discovered a cocoon in the bark of a tree, just as a butterfly was making a hole in its case and preparing to come out. I waited a while, but it appeared too long and I was impatient. I bent over it and breathed on it to warm it. I warmed it as quickly as I could and the miracle began to happen before my eyes, faster than life. The case opened, the butterfly started slowly crawling out and I shall never forget my horror when I saw how its wings were folded back and crumpled; the wretched butterfly tried with its whole trembling body to unfold them. Bending over it, I tried to help it with my breath. In vain.
It had to be hatched out patiently and the unfolding of the wings should be a gradual process in the sun. Now it was too late. My breath had forced the butterfly to appear, all crumpled before its time. It struggled desperately and, a few seconds later, died in the palm of my hand
That little body is, I do believe, the greatest weight I have on my consciousness. For I realize today that it is a mortal sin to violate the great laws of nature. We should not hurry, we should not be impatient, but we should confidently obey the eternal rhythm."
This excerpt form 'Zorba the Greek' by Kazantzakis is a wonderful reminder that the Universal Laws of Nature are omnipresent, onmipotent, omnipowerful and unmutable. The only wise way to live is by being in harmony with them. Are you in harmony with the Universal Laws of Nature? Do you even know them? I invite you to visit this blog in the next days and I will offer you more on them.
Enjoy your life's journey!
Infinite love and gratitude to you,
