Gently resting in the soft purple flowers the monarch butterfly slowly opens its wings and folds them up again. The steady rhythm is mesmerizing. As I continued to watch I found myself berating in time with the wings. With each pump of wings the day’s stress and negativity just drain away. Science tells us that the reason why a butterfly does this while feeding is because it’s wing muscles are connected to it’s feeding muscles. The reason why we find this so calming is because we’re just as much a part of creation as it is. When we are out in the natural world we instinctively sync up with natural rhythems. Not in some oogie-boogie way but in the same way that water knows it’s course to the sea. If you’re in tune with yourself you’ll notice that when there’s a soft breeze that your heart rate drops a little. When the sun shines we smile more. When wildlife approaches we become still. We might have to be taught how to react but we know that something special is happening.
The Monarch lingers on the bloom long enough for my spirit to completely settle and leave the artificial world of computers behind.
