Metamorphosis that a larva goes through isn’t a deliberate effort. It’s the unflinching determination of that tiny caterpillar that it’s born with but is unaware of.
It’s the dormant energy; the latent energy that slumbers in all until the need arises to bring it to the fore. Nature propels all to survive the hardships and wake up to the powers that they are born with. The cocoon may protect from the worldly dangers but a slit in it guarantees ultimate freedom.
The silken thread chrysalises the warrior within, the one who is incognizant of his own powers. Nature propels towards taking action whenever time challenges.
As Om Swami quotes, “It is a dive in the ocean of one’s existence so one may bring the pearls of character and brilliance to the surface.”
