The man found a coocoon of a butterfly. For days he visited this spot in hope of seeing the butterfly come out. One day a small opening appeared. He sat and watch the butterfly as it struggled to force its body through the opening. It seemed to stop making any progress. It appeared it had gotten as far as it could, and it would go no further. The man walked away sadly.
What the man did not understand was that a butterflys struggle to move through its coocoon passes fluid from its body to its wings, a process neccesary for flight.
In its own time when the time is right, the butterfly will emerge from its cocoon, ready to fly.
