The Government, The People, The Caterpillar & The Butterfly

There is a great deal of fear and anger around these days as is evidenced by the public outcry and conflict occurring at congressional Town Hall meetings over proposed health care legislation. This is just the latest and most visible display of something that’s been brewing for quite awhile now.

I have written about this growing fear and anger for over the past year and a half in this blog.

As more and more people voice their opposition to not only the proposed health care plan but also with government in general, its starting to look and sound like a battle between the Left and the Right.  Actually, between the extreme Left and extreme Right of both political parties.  But it only looks that way because that’s how conventional media is portraying it.

If you look with your own eyes and listen with your own ears you will see and hear something very different.

What you will see is Change. Not the bumper sticker change that catapulted Barack Obama to the White House.

Real change.

Systemic change.

History altering change.

The transition we are living through now, transformation actually, is best likened to the metamorphosis that occurs when a caterpillar becomes a butterfly.  When this takes place, its the end of the caterpillar as we know it, admittedly. But its also the beginning of a life form that is less dense, able to cover much more territory from a higher perspective and… happens to be quite beautiful, as a perk.
The difference between the caterpillar dying (or transforming) and the demise of the corrupted legislative, judicial and executive branches of government as they now function can best be summed up in a single word.


The caterpillar has none and the politicians have an excess.

So when Nature says its time for the caterpillar to “let go and let God,” so to speak, it simply does. To the contrary, when the will of the People says it time for the politicians to do the same, they react by making their best efforts to hold on and, in fact, will do whatever it takes to stay exactly where they comfortably are.

So what’s to be done now that the People have called an audible?  May I suggest the following:

If you are one of the People…do not lose you voice. Do not despair that change is not happening as fast as you would like it to.  Do not lose hope.  Do not second-guess your instincts.

If you are one of the politicians…find the Truth you misplaced long ago. Understand that change is happening faster than you can imagine. Re-establish the hope and faith in the Republic that drew the very first politicians to service. Do not second-guess your instincts.

Because both the People and the politicians instinctively know that the End is near.

But so, too, is the Beginning.

The only question is, “Are you the caterpillar or the butterfly?
