The Butterfly

Lessons can be learnt from nature, take the butterfly that flutters from this flower to the next then it settles, absolutely still, at times with the wings closed and sometimes showing the world its beauty and then it silently and still drinks the nectar from the flower.

Our minds go here and there and somewhere else most of the time, do we ever think to stop every so often as the butterfly does to absorb the Divine nectar of silence.  Like the butterfly do we withdraw (closed wings) or do we expand our consciousness (open wings) beyond the world of objects?
