Flight of the Butterfly

内容提要:在好心和匆忙间,他并不理解,蝴蝶破茧而出时需要的那种束缚和挣扎其实是大自然用来将蝴蝶的体液挤到翅膀中的方法,这样,蝴蝶一旦能从茧中脱出,就能准备好飞翔了。

    One day, man found a cocoon of a butterfly. Soon, a small opening appeared.

    He sat and watched the butterfly for several hours as it struggled to squeeze its body through the tiny hole.  Then it stopped, as if it couldn’t go further.

    So the man decided to help the butterfly. He took a pair of scissors and snipped off the remaining bits of cocoon. The butterfly emerged easily but it had a swollen body and shriveled wings.

    The man continued to watch it, expecting that any minute the wings would enlarge and expand enough to support the body, Neither happened!

    In fact the butterfly spent the rest of its life crawling around. It was never able to fly.

    What the man in his kindness and haste did not understand was that the restricting cocoon and the struggle required by the butterfly to get through the opening was a way of forcing the fluid from the body into the wings so that it would be ready for flight once that was achieved.

    Sometimes struggles are exactly what we need in our lives. Going through life with no obstacles would cripple us. We will not be as strong as we could have been and we would never fly.
