Is the butterfly master of the caterpillar?
Is the sun master of the moon?
Is the rich man master of the poor man?
Is the boulder master of the pebble?
In doing it’s work, is the universe master of you?
In doing your work, are you master of the universe?
In doing its work, is the universe not doing your work?
In doing your work, are you not also doing the work of the universe?
The caterpillar wears a kingly crown,
The moon wears a kingly crown,
The poor man wears a kingly crown,
The pebble wears a kingly crown,
A crown as kingly as King Richard I wore (known as “Richard the Lionheart)
Richard was a crusading king,
He gained fame for his chivalry,
For his courage,
For his indefatigable spirit.
Does not the caterpillar, the moon, the poor man, the pebble display these same qualities, as did King Richard I, in their own unique ways?
Look at you:
Learning to walk & talk,
Read & write,
Swim and ride a bike
All, by age six.
Remove the veil of inferiority
Until the sublime truth about you,
In all of your greatness
I say to you, “You are an intricate and valuable part of all of it. Never lose sight of that fact. Go about your daily service today – service to your family, service to your job, service to your country, service to the world, SERVICE TO YOURSELF – knowing that you are, indeed, an intricate and valuable part of all of it. If you weren’t a perfect fit, you wouldn’t be here. And if the crown of mastery weren’t a perfect fit, you couldn’t wear it. You are a perfect fit, and the crown is a perfect fit – wear it proudly.”
