Dear Brothers and Sisters:
There are various types of processes! We live from natural to spirit. Here is a list of some of processes that people go through: Growth and Maturity, healing, birthing, learning, and dying, not particularly in this order. All of these processes happen in the natural world and in the spirit world. It is two-fold or multi-dimensional. The purpose of this is to say that if people learn to go through the correct process they can make it.
Now let us take a look at the cocoon. The cocoon is the process a caterpillar goes through to develop into a butterfly. It do not come out of the cocoon before time. It may be disturbed by an outside force but the caterpillar on its own accord does not come out the cocoon too soon. Even though the butterfly only lives for one day out for the cocoon it still goes through the process. The process may be anything that a person may find himself or herself in. It does not matter if it is good, bad, or indifferent, going through the process is not about the cocoon but the other side of going through and being content or being complacent. Cocoons are timeless or ageless. Man deals with a time frame, but G-d and all his other creations do not question the purpose, definitely not in relation to time. G-d is time, so He does not focus on time as we suppose because with G-d things are as He command them to be. Mans focus and priorities are out of sync with what G-d wants. G-d’s plan helps us to be perfected in all areas of our lives. We question G-d too much. We want to know a lot more than we need to as oppose to trusting G-d. He knows even in the process that the race is not given to the swift nor the strong but the one who endures to the end. The race is a great analogy of life because we all do not get there at the same time. Time deals with finality, while finality deals time, and G-d is not defined by time because He is the creator! He has infinite wisdom and He knows, so we should trust him. In going through the process, your heart can become more like the heart of G-d, and become more willing to say and live this phrase: Not my will, they will be done.
