THE BUTTERFLY

He was in search of God
and  in despair cried out:
"God, touch me."

Whereupon, God reached down and gently touched him.


But the man brushed the butterfly away ....
and walked on, disappointed.

He could not see God anywhere,
because he could not see Him everywhere.
(Ishaavaasyam idam sarvam - Upanishad)


The mark of your ignorance
Is the depth of your belief in injustice and tragedy.


What the caterpillar calls the end of the world,


The master calls a butterfly!

(from Illusions by Richard Bach)
