Creating a New Mind: Monarchs as a Metaphor for Humanity
Byron Library, Saturday July 15th 10:30am
Presenter: Renée Phillips
Humanity is undergoing big changes–changes that will allow us to reach new heights–but the process involves giving up the old structures. It can be a scary time if we don’t take time to step back and look at the potentialities being realized.
Caterpillars molt their skin when they become restrictive–each molting providing an expansion or continuation of the structures that existed before. After molting, the caterpillar is still a caterpillar, just bigger and still with an insatiable appetite. Inside the caterpillar are cells called imaginal cells that hold the blueprints for the butterfly. When the time is right for the caterpillar to morph, the imaginal cells use all the protein resources around them to create specialized structures that will be essential for the flight and life of the butterfly. When the process is complete the creature is no longer restricted to crawling on the earth but can fly vast distances and great heights…and yet all that was needed for the butterfly was already within the caterpillar.
Humanity has great potential. The resources and blueprints for greater capacities are already with it. Are we ready to leave behind the old structures that hold us back?
The Baha’i Community of London is planning to celebrate the “Twin Holy Birthdays.” All are welcome to join the community in these special Holy Day celebrations to commemorate the birth of Baha’u’llah, the Prophet-founder of the Baha’i Faith and of the Bab, His Forerunner on November 1, 2016. Details of the event are as follows:
On Thursday, October 13, 2016, the opening ceremonies for the new Baha’i House of Worship were held in Santiago, Chile. Some five thousand Baha’is from 110 countries along with numerous invited dignitaries marked the opening celebrations in a spirit of joy and radiance. Several members of the Baha’i Community of London attended the event. This ceremony marks the culmination of a fourteen year process carried out by Baha’is around the world who laboured tirelessly to bring to fruition the vision to have a House of Worship on every continent. Live coverage of the events was streamed over the Internet.
