As you walk through the world do you ever notice signs? While I consider myself to be spiritual, sometimes I’d prefer to take a walk and not be on the lookout for anything. I’d rather be, than meticulously survey my surrounding for signs. That’s how most of us are most of the time.
Lately, the universe seems to have a different plan for me. I am being inundated with dragonflies. They swarm me in parking lots, they swarm my car when I’m at a traffic light, they are constantly trapped in my screened-in patio. I’ve seen illustrations of them everywhere, too. I was in the post office today and there was a picture of a dragonfly! I was shopping for clothes on-line (I don’t do stores), and a sweater I liked came in dragonfly blue. I had a dragonfly trapped in my bedroom blinds that buzzed intermittently throughout the night. I waited until daylight to see what it was, too afraid of what I would find during the night. As I walked my dogs I came across a moving truck parked in a driveway in the middle of our path with a giant dragonfly on it. I couldn’t take it anymore. What is the universe trying to tell me? What am I trying to tell myself? These are one in the same if you think about it.
The dragonfly, in almost every part of the world symbolizes change and change in the perspective of self-realization; and the kind of change that has its source in mental and emotional maturity and the understanding of the deeper meaning of life.
The changes unseen are the ones that matter. I do not look different but I am different.
It’s time to follow the path of the dragonfly.
