The best way I can think to describe this is: catching a butterfly. You know how most people have the visual of swinging a net around as they try to capture a butterfly. It’s an image popularized in cartoons over the years. Only that method doesn’t really work. For one thing, any rapid movements typically chase the butterfly away,and even if you are lucky enough to swing just the right way, chances are the net itself will either hurt the butterfly or be too open and it will escape.
So then what?
You have to understand that there is no way to “catch” a butterfly, but you can “attract” one. Butterflies are drawn to things that are still and safe, drawn to things that soothe and nourish its needs and spirit. That’s why sitting very still and showing the butterfly that you mean it no harm is the only way the butterfly will come to you. There is no safe way to capture it, but you can give it all reason to CHOOSE to land and stay with you.
That’s why I say he is the ONLY man who firmly knew how to CATCH A BUTTERFLY, simply by ATTRACTING ME to him, and being consistently safe and peaceful so that I never wanted to leave. When I fly around a bit to work on a project, he knows I won’t be gone for long, because he is MY SANCTUARY. I know where is home. I know where is safe. I know where my peaceful center and joy come from. Without my center, I feel less at peace, less powerful, etc.
He is that center,and thank God he finally knows how much he has always meant to me.
