The Sufi mystic Rumi said, "The people of this world are like the three butterflies in front of a candle’s flame.

The first one went close to the flame and said:

I know about love.


The second one touched the flame lightly with his wings and said:

I know how love’s fire can burn.

The third one threw himself into the heart of the flame and was consumed.

He alone knows what true love is."
We are all initiates in the great mystery of love.

Throughout life we walk through gates and portals that take us deeper into the vast unknown which is mirrored in our understanding of self. Rumi speaks to three stages on the this epic journey- curiosity, dissolution, and surrender. We are all hopelessly drawn to love like the butterfly to the flame and all phases of our experience are leading us to the awakened state of our true nature which must be lived and experienced to become actualized. 

Where are you fluttering?

Like the first butterfly- observing from the sidelines? Loving from a distance? Analyzing love in the mind?

Like the 2nd butterfly- sour and bitter by the flames heat? Protective, reluctant, and dismissive due to  the associated pain that accompanies love? 

Or like the third, where few have ventured, willing to be transformed by the infinite power of loves consumption?   

Initiations require you to being in a state of "not knowing” so you are tested to find faith and surrender the small self. If you find yourself in quicksand or feel ready to take a leap see my new offering below.
