1888's Take: "I wonder if humans in the middle of their lives suddenly felt an undeniable need to build a chrysalis around themselves and completely reform into a new physical being? I wonder if the spiritual aspect of this... "time out" as it were, this rest away from the world would allow us the time needed to fully integrate those lessons learned in the first half of our lives so that we could carry their worth up the ladder of our second half..."
An undeniable symbol of transformation, butterflies teach us to embrace change. After all, the only true constant in life is change. Have the strength to create yourself anew.
*The Ancient Greeks often represented the soul as a butterfly so the divine symbolism of this delicate creature should get its due.
