I have been a big believer of this quote and have tried to transform my life to be my ideal being for a while yet couldn't, deciding purchase and read the whole book to get better insight. What I realized after reading the book was, to become a butterfly, the caterpillar must patiently go through one more stage in between, "pupa.." Also, to become a butterfly, the caterpillar should not try to achieve higher, richer, etc, but rather let go of its self, "dying" and transform to new self by let go of current self. Now I am more patient and enjoying the pupa stage; knowing that one day I could be a butterfly way I always dreamed of. I recommend this "food of thought" book to anyone but especially who are frustrated and tired try to be survive in such a competitive "caterpillar" society.
