“Awakening is not a thing. It is not a goal, not a concept. It is not something to be attained. It is a metamorphosis.
If the caterpillar thinks about the butterfly it is to become, saying ‘And then I shall have wings and antennae,’ there will never be a butterfly.
The caterpillar must accept its own disappearance in its transformation. When the marvelous butterfly takes wing, nothing of the caterpillar remains.”

Alejandro Jodorowsky
