Nature Works its own ways; never interfere with it

One day a man found a cocoon of a butterfly. A few days later small opening appeared. He sat and watched the butterfly for several hours as it struggled to force its body through that little hole. Then it seemed to stop making any progress. It appeared as if it had gotten as far as it could, and it could go no further. So the man decided to help the butterfly. He took a pair of scissors and snipped off the remaining bit of the cocoon. The butterfly then emerged easily. But it had a swollen body and small, shriveled wings. The man continued to watch the butterfly because he expected that, at any moment, the wings would enlarge and expand to be able to support the body, which would contract in time, but neither happened. In fact, the butterfly spent the rest of its life crawling around with the swollen body and shriveled wings. It never was able to fly.


What the man, in his kindness and haste did not understand was that the restricting cocoon and the struggle required for the butterfly to get through the tiny opening, was Nature's way of forcing fluid from the body of the butterfly into its wing so that it would be ready for flight once it is out from the cocoon.


Nature has everything planned for us and at times the struggle we go through, is Nature's way of preparing us for future hardships. Let Nature take its own course and things will eventually fall in place. Don't interfere its plan for you never know when it backfires on you and results in damage for life.
