Throughout all our lives, 
We have discovered one at a time, or all at once.
Happiness and joy, sorrow and tears.
Heedless butterfly, who only knows laughter and flowers,
Gloomy caterpillar, who gets stuck in mud and tears.
But the one, like the other, are only two aspects of the same being.
The one would not exist without the other.

(Zen Philosophy ~ Seng - T'san)

For the caterpillar to become a butterfly, it has to squeeze itself out of the cocoon's tiny opening. This process is extremely painful but equally important as this struggle starts the chemical reaction which ultimately starts the wings developing process. Scientifically, its called metamorphosis... Practically, its called change. Change is the process which may appear painful but its equally important for each one of us as it helps us grow our wings, soar over the skies and taste the sweet nectar of life.
