Eileen Caddy on the process of growth & change

‘There is no strain or stress in nature. A seed goes through its full cycle; it does not have to do anything; it just has to allow it all to happen. All you have to do is to allow it all to happen. Why not let yourself be transformed into a glorious butterfly? Come out of the chrysalis, that confined space, out of the restrictions of your mortal mind and ideas. When a snake changes its skin, it slowly wriggles out of its old one and leaves it behind to wither away and disintegrate. A crab outgrows its shell as it grows and expands, and grows a bigger more beautiful one. A bird cracks open its shell and emerges completely transformed. It is free, free, free! That is what is waiting to happen to you. A new freedom, a new joy, a whole new world is waiting to open up for you when you are willing to move out of those old restrictive ways, thoughts and ideas, and be transformed.’
