A butterfly in its embryonic stage is known as a larva, or caterpillar. The caterpillar is what translates or metamorphose into a beautiful and colorfully radiant butterfly. This process of change is indispensable for the evolving caterpillar as it keeps digging and burrowing its way out of its protective cocoon in order to begin the journey of life.
This painful but necessary process strengthens its wings, prepares and equips it for the challenge of the sky, a place of dominion that must be conquered with strong, flapping wings. For the butterfly-to-be caterpillar to remain in its comfort-zone cocoon is to suffer still-birth and permanent deformity, thus becoming useless for life.
