You Are God's Best Idea! Daily Epigram for:

"Even the mountains bow upon the casting of the chrysalis. May
the Sun bid you pardon."-Douglas Holzmeier
If you’ve read your fair share of inspirational and spiritual books - it is almost impossible to escape the obligatory allegories of the acorn and the caterpillar. The acorn analogy is that the mighty Oak tree resides in the comparatively tiny acorn. The caterpillar metaphor is about the lowly worm turning into the beautiful butterfly.
The problem - is that there is no such thing as the lowly worm. The canker and snail are as divine as the butterfly and whale. There is no symbol of strength in the Oak without squirrel food - the acorn. There is no Monarch Butterfly without the caterpillar. The danger in rags to riches parables is they diminish the divinity of rags – our humble beginnings. A rag is a remnant of what was once a grand towel – or a small cloth. A doily is a very nice rag. It’s all linen – threads of fabric that can come together to provide a purpose – to polish our furniture or our promise. Interestingly – an acorn is also known as finial – which is the ornament that is often placed at the top of furniture or architecture.
Smalls things have purpose. Sour things have purpose. Cold things have purpose. Dark things have purpose. My message is that wherever you have been – are – or will be – You Are God’s Best Idea! You are a grand idea in motion. The idea of you is a perfect and divine expression. How you express this perfection is choice. The acorn and caterpillar do not choose.
Human beings can cast off the casings of what Ralph Waldo Emerson calls our foolish consistencies. You must decide whether you will be a divine seed that reaches its highest potential or hide your glory beneath the surface. In either case – you are still a child of the most high – even if you choose to climb your mountains a step at a time. The real weight - is that you rise to embrace Illumination.
Shed what no longer serves your mission. Travel lightly. It is the elevation of your mind that gives wings to your ideas. Ascend with Love. The in flight movie is Your Life. It comes with a refillable bucket of Acorns and all the Good & Plenty you desire.
Enjoy the Show!
