“It's only when caterpillarness is done that one becomes a butterfly. That again is part of this paradox. You cannot rip away caterpillarness. The whole trip occurs in an unfolding process of which we have no control.”
I was mulling over the idea of making another Ram Dass portrait and started to doodle in my sketchbook when the thought popped into my head to surround him in a giant butterfly.
So being a weirdo, I asked him…do you want another picture of yourself out in the world? Should I use butterflies?
Then less than a minute later my girlfriend sent me a text and since she loves Ram Dass I was *about* to tell her my inspiration but got shy and said nothing. When we were done chatting, I opened my phone to Instagram and the very first image that came up was a GIGANTIC Butterfly!!
and the rest just poured out of my heart.
I made this while surrendering my ego, chanting and sewing away.
