oh, it is so different here! I have been busy my whole life, I’ve been busy with ....
“After wandering for a while, the caterpillar makes a simple silk pad on the underside of a branch or twig. It uses a hook-covered appendage called a cremaster to attach itself to this pad. It twists around, embedding its cremaster firmly in the silk. Then, it sheds its skin, revealing the chrysalis.
....Yeah, busy getting my cremaster strong and also making that essential silk pad strong enough so I could safely hang there, no more wandering, when the time was right.
Now I am not so busy anymore. I don’t want to be busy anymore. Interestingly, I no longer seek for that place where to place the silk pad. I realize now I’ve been doing that most of my life, getting ready for this time. So now, in being still, I realize that even though I am not The transformation, Transformation is all there is of me... well, mostly anyway. Still some twists and turns but not like before. It is almost more like bliss in here.
