Ram Dass, Be Here Now 1971

WE’RE TALKING ABOUT A METAMORPHOSIS, WE’RE TALKING ABOUT GOING FROM A CATERPILLAR TO BUTTERFLY, WE’RE TALKING ABOUT HOW TO BECOME A BUTTERFLY.

I MEAN: THE CATERPILLAR ISN’T WALKING AROUND SAYING: MAN I’LL SOON BE A BUTTERFLY

BECAUSE: AS LONG AS HE’S BUSY BEING A CATERPILLAR HE CAN’T BE A BUTTERFLY.

IT’S ONLY WHEN CATERPILLARNESS IS DONE THAT ONE STARTS TO BE A BUTTERFLY AND THAT AGAIN IS PART OF THIS PARADOX YOU CANNOT RIP AWAY CATERPILLARNESS.
