things i wonder

i saw this while running recently. it wasn't all the way light out & i almost ran into this cocoon. i saw myself in it, my bravest self, right away. how is it such little creatures can be such big teachers? sending out love to all your becomings xox

yes, your bright wings
grow stronger
and more vivid
out here in the open
and it's a beauty
and a wonder
to behold:)

And you....I love you.

becoming in the wide open definitely takes a little more courage but the light in us can fear and do it anyway, I think.

Love and light to you, Beautiful Being.

How lovely, Rachel! It is so often the little things that make us stop in our tracks and teach us things.

I just love that little cocoon hanging there safe and warm ready to be bumped into and burst open. So glad you found it!

Ces said...

Good morning! Oh yes, SuperGlue, I think, may do it? Hehehe. Okay, just kidding. As long as there is no typhoon to blow away the cocoon...

Oh I can just feel the wonderful moment of becoming and popping out of that cocoon in glorious freedom! Wow! Gives me goose bumps. What a wonderful word picture in your art here Rachel. And your beautiful colors after bursting out are so beautiful and you fly with such inspirational glory!

I wonder that too. I wonder how to create a cocoon of safety around me, so that I feel safe in the wide open.

Becoming in the wide open is the best way! Great inspiration to others. One of my life lessons from butterflies is that they don't just change...you can always change back but they transform into what they were created to be.

Thanks for sharing! Love your art!!!

Miriam Daniel said...

I just saw this post, and I loooove it!

I'm trying to become myself out in the open. I'm encountering more obstacles on the inside and the outside than I imagined.

Keep becoming and creating!
