Do not merely look through the screen of fragmentation that was instilled within (and “as”) your mind.

[This is not, as many might think, a Monarch Butterfly. It is a Viceroy Butterfly, resting at the base of an Oak Tree along some moss.  Unlike Monarchs, Viceroy Butterflies do not migrate south for the winter.  Viceroy Butterflies overwinter as caterpillars, resting inside rolled leaves.  Once the weather gets a bit colder, this Viceroy will likely perish; but its caterpillar offspring will survive the winter to emerge as new, splendid butterflies.]

Don’t merely think and react as you were programmed to. Be a light to yourself!

[This is a Viceroy Butterfly. Birds avoid Viceroy Butterflies if they have previously tried to eat a Monarch or a Queen Butterfly, which are poisonous.  However, those birds that have not had this experience readily eat the non-poisonous Viceroy Butterflies.]
