A caterpillar had a dream that he was more than only a caterpillar. He saw vision after vision of what was deep inside him: great news of a real future for every caterpillar! He saw what caterpillars actually were on the inside. He knew the truth of what all the caterpillars would eventually become in time. He even had dreams where he had already been what everyone was to become. This had happened before, many times, and the idea only confirmed the reality of his special gifts. He couldn’t wait to shout the news!
But when he shared his beautiful dreams of the future…the one (psychic) caterpillar, ahead of his time…
was not believed. He was not believed by friends and family. He was not believed by caterpillars around him or anyone. NO ONE was capable of understanding that one of their own held a big secret to the existence of caterpillars in the universe. Not one, small, crummy, dirt-crawling BUG believed the ‘great news’ that they were in fact NOT small, crummy, dirt-crawling bugs. The others didn’t see what he saw.
The messenger-caterpillar was not complimented or credited in any way for his colorful message. For his efforts of bringing the truth to the world of brown dirt…he was ridiculed, tortured and alienated by other caterpillars. He had only one alternative: He would lock himself inside a homespun ‘cocoon’ and prove them all wrong. In time, he became the wonderful vision in his dreams.
He ascended and was another creature entirely and quickly flew over the world of caterpillars crawling in brown dirt.
The others saw this and slowly made their way to their homes. They all started to spin cocoons…
