Enlightenment

In spiritual communities there is an oft used illustration of a caterpillar becoming a butterfly.

Enlightenment is when the butterfly realizes there are no caterpillars, and the belief it was one created the cocoon.

As children we play, without needing to be anything but who are in the moment. There is no seeking. No spiritual journey. We spend a long time, many of us, coming back home.
