“And the day came when the risk to remain tight in the bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.” -Anaïs Nin

Perhaps this is the way the silkworm feels before it begins the process of coming forth from the cocoon. The struggle to emerge from a situation that is well-known but no longer comfortable can be quite bruising. Like the silkworm the muscles that are needed to allow our “spiritual wings” to develop are exerted in this process. When we emerge, we pause a moment to catch our breath and practice beating our wings in the warmth of the Sun before we take to flight. This is what I experienced. And this is my place to share the stories of what I see as I live my Live Mature! -Patricia
