During the off day, I love to spend happy morning in the lovely garden with Little White and Little black.
It’s great to observe their playing times, truly adorable, what a wonderful moment in life!
Besides, I will take a mindful walk in the garden, most of the times, I am able to discover some of new friends in garden.
Look closer to the little caterpillar, it’s truly amazing!
Before the caterpillar transform to be a beautiful butterfly, he need to go through a few stages in life. During the stage of caterpillar, he need to keep munching the leaves or plants before it turn to cocoon.
Do you allow the little caterpillar to keeping munching your plant?
For our family, we are happy to see the caterpillar in garden and we are wiling to live harmony with them. The leaves in a plant will grow back later, as such we don’t put any pesticides in any of our plant and we don’t kill.
When I look at the little caterpillar, it reminded us on “CHANGE”.
“Everything changes, nothing remain without change.”
Imagine, if there is no change in caterpillar, we’ll unable to see the beautiful butterfly.
Embrace change and you see the transformation in life!
Besides, we must be a patient in the transformation process, be full of faith and hope.
Never give up easily and nothing comes easy!
It’s apply the same in spiritual path, be diligent!
No matter what stages of life you are in, be totally accept yourself and love yourself. Most important to live at now. Just like the beautiful butterfly, he need to go through caterpillar, pupa, cocoon before transform to the beautiful butterfly.
“To dwell in the here and now does not mean you never think about the past or responsibly plan for the future. The idea is simply not to allow yourself to get lost in regrets about the past or worries about the future. If you are firmly grounded in the present moment, the past can be an object of inquiry, the object of your mindfulness and concentration. You can attain many insights by looking into the past. But you are still grounded in the present moment.”
