I Dream of Butterflies

DSC_0212 - Version 2

Every time I have a dream in which I am visited by a butterfly, I seem to notice peace and kindness around me.

It’s as if the butterfly was delivering a message of promised goodwill.

Or perhaps it’s the colourful gracefulness of the butterfly that evokes feelings of peace and love in me.

When a small child, I thought that success spelled happiness. I was wrong, happiness is like a butterfly which appears and delights us for one brief moment, but soon flits away. – Anna Pavlova

Happiness is a butterfly, which when pursued, is always just beyond your grasp, but which, if you will sit down quietly, may alight upon you. – Nathaniel Hawthorne

I dreamed I was a butterfly, flitting around in the sky; Then I awoke. Now I wonder: Am I a man who dreamt of being a butterfly, or am I a butterfly dreaming that I am a man? – Zhuangzi
