A Walk in the Park

    Today I was reminded of a very special walk in the park.
I was in a tizzy.  You see I felt I was going in circles.
The days were rolling by & the nights dragging.
So I sat on a bench at the waters edge and began to ponder.
I found myself in a day dream. I saw myself as a caterpillar.
Crawling around on my belly.  Not really going any where but moving none the less.
Being a caterpillar was not a problem, That I didn't mind.  It was the crawling around going nowhere.
I found that, in this state I just wandered and existed.  Being, but not doing.
It made me feel as though I had no purpose, as though things were just passing by.
Yet I had a stirring, a calling of sorts.  Couldn't quite put it together, yet the stir moved within.
It tickled my mind.  I began to search and seek what and where to go.
I found a tree.  Began to climb.  It was a task and caused bumps and bruises.
However, I was compelled. I couldn't stop the pull and did not want to.
So climb I did up that tree and there I found the place of Peace like I've never known. 
A place where the mind was the focus and the Spirit of man was the place of reckoning.
I wrapped myself in this new strength.  It fit like a cocoon, weaving itself around me.
Mind.  Body.  Soul.  Spirit. 
I was enamored.  A strange new thing was taking place and it felt good.
It was hard to adjust to the new mindset and yet my soul longed for the change.
I stayed in this condition for a long time, seeking, striving, morphing into my true self.
You see I had no Idea what was transpiring, only that it was intriguing and beguiling.
I  received this as a strange and wonderful experience.
Something deep within pressed upon me.   I began to push my way through this chrysalis.
Compelled to push ever out and into that new something I could not quite understand.
Push I did, with ALL the courage and Might I could muster.
Facing all the old behaviors and thoughts , realizing they did not fit me anymore.
I had changed , formed into the True self and the reality struck deep.
You see as I pushed I worked all that Wisdom & Word & Teaching through every cell in my being.
As I emerged I found I was no longer a caterpillar....I had drastically changed.
There I sat, ready to take flight.  For I had become my TRUE self....A BEAUTIFUL Butterfly.
Now able and willing to soar and be free....for I had granted myself permission to be.
Just be, a new creation and in doing so, to be free.
The mind is a mighty tool of powerful influence and ability.
When filled with positive fullness of word and principle utter change forms .
I have had the wonderful experience of transforming into my true self.
I invite you to take the journey and find that within--- you too, can fly.
Use Words of Wisdom & Truth and allow the Beauty of your True self to be set free.

I am so fortunate that you are now a beautiful butterfly, Fran, as your flight and the flutter of your wings has shed a bright light on my 'being' that is helping to show me where to fly... now. When I found the Million Mind March I found the butterflies I'd always wanted to fly with in one place, at a time when I was truly alone... We flutter to lift up others and in the lifting of others I am sure I will find my direction again. Thank you for a lovely story I can also share with others.

Beautiful story you share here Fran! You have such a way with words. I like the way you express what is in your heart. You truly have a gift. I'm looking forward to your next post.

That son of yours should be writing also because here shares the gift with his mother.

Fran...wonderful piece...wonderful. First thing I was drawn to this morning was hearing your words expressed so clearly. You are a beautiful butterfly and I know your words will sing with so many caterpillars out there looking for their purpose. You have such a way with your words, it is a beautiful thing to hear and now read. Keep them coming and share your wisdom with the world. We are so blessed to have met you. Thank you thank you thank you for your beautiful message.
