Transformation is transformation only when my own past looks like someone else's past!

Its fascinating - The life cycle of a dragonfly. Extraordinary life lesson!

We are truly fortunate to be born human beings with all of the universe open and ready to share with us her secrets if we would only learn. Here's one fantastic story I have for you for the New Year.

The nymph community was foraging at the bottom of the lake and discussing the disappearance of some of their members who went up to the surface never to be seen again. They came to an agreement under oath that the next nymph that goes up to the surface will return to tell the others of his experience. And so it was, it so happened that one of them went up the lotus stem and onto the leaf where he sat taking in the sights and sounds. With the suns rays warming him, metamorphosis happened and the nymph began the process of releasing the dragonfly that slowly and painfully emerged, leaving the lifeless shell of the nymph hanging precariously from the stem.

The dragonfly shook his wings, and trembling, took flight. He was ecstatic, truly feeling on top of the world. He was a new creation, he flew around the lake and then went on to explore the rest of his new world. From time to time he came to rest on the lotus leaf, and on one such occassion, looked down to see a colony of nymphs, and remembered the oath he had taken. He flew up and dipped down toward the water but pulled back, as his survival instincts told him he could'nt go down in the water. As he pondered this, he concluded that even if he wanted, he would not be able to go back from where he'd come! Another fact flashed across his mind, if he somehow managed to get back to them, Would they recognize him? He also understood that If he had not chosen to give up the comfort zone of a nymph, he would never have become a dragonfly. He knew he could'nt forsake the nymph's and brilliant idea came to him when he realized that if he just flew around some of those nymphs in the lake may see him and be inspired by the life he lived and become dragonflies themselves!

Transformation is transformation only when my own past looks like someone else's past! Have you transcended your past to be what you can in the future?

People will not recognize you, this is the price you have to pay for going up in life! Somehow your old world cannot relate to you. The nymph will never be able to relate to the dragonfly.

As long as you are satisfied and content to live in your comfor zone, you can never soar to greater heights. You have the potential of being a dragonfly then why do you insist on being a waterbug - a nymph?

The responsibility of every person who makes it in life is to be a worthy roll model for those who have not yet.


Have a Blessed and Prosperous New Year -2016


You develop and discover a great self-worth by doing  something for others – not to ourselves!
