The Butterfly Project
The Butterfly Project invites us to place our moral transformation in a project mode. It is a self-undertaking which proposes the study, the reflection, and the practical application of the subject matter.
"The evolutionary experience is personal, individual
and non-transferable." Honorio de Abreu
Why the name 'The Butterfly Project'? Butterflies have different meanings in different cultures. In Early Christianity [the period preceding the First Council of Nicaea, in 325 AC], the butterfly was a symbol of the soul. Commonly, the butterfly symbolizes change and transformation; this ensues when an ordinary caterpillar metamorphoses into a beautiful butterfly.
When we strive to become moral individuals, something similar to the butterfly’s life cycle happens. We metamorphose the old Self into a new Self, changing deep-rooted and unhealthy habits into new, healthy ones. It is a gradual, continuous process that requires above all our will, discipline, and determination.
Let’s get inspired to work on our inner transformation to fulfill our duties in life.
