caterpillar one day says, "I think I was made for more
than this crawling on the ground." So the
caterpillar climbs the tree, attaches himself to a leaf and
spins the cocoon. Who knows what disciplined effort it
takes to spin a cocoon. But something inside the
caterpillar says, "I was designed for something more
than being just a caterpillar."
then when the cocoon is ready and it opens up, out comes a
butterfly that flies away, maybe singing, "I believe I
can fly! I believe I can touch the sky! I used
to be a caterpillar on the ground, now I fly."
asking you to go through such a metamorphosis. I'm
asking you often to go through a period where you say,
"New skills, new things are waiting for me," and
part of this will come if you'll translate for other people
what you feel in your heart and in your soul. As
awkward as your language might be at first, don't hesitate
to do it.
what sharing does--it makes room for more. Key
question, if this glass is full of water can it hold any
more? If the glass is full of water, can it hold any
more? And the answer is yes, yes, if you pour some
out. So jot that down. If you want more, you've
got to pour out what you've got, then you have the
opportunity to receive more.
unlike the glass that remains the same size when you pour
some out; not so in consciousness human beings. Your
capacity will increase the more you share. You'll get
bigger and bigger and bigger.
why the self-interest wish to be bigger? Here's
why: to hold more of the next experience. Some
people can't hold much happiness because they're too small,
their thinking is too small, their activity is too small,
they're too small in their ability to share, they're just
too small. Can't hold much, they're too small.
the bigger you get, the more you will receive. When
happiness is poured out, you'll get more. When joy is
poured out on the nation, you'll get more. When bounty
is poured out from the economy, you will get more, if you
share what you've got and become bigger and bigger and
some people are not only small, they have their glass turned
upside down. It's hard to get anything in. But
if you come to every situation with an open mind, an open
consciousness, ready to receive, I promise you will find the
people that will share with you, and that will accept what
you share with them.
