I am an imaginal cell in the body of humanity.
An imaginal cell is a cell in a caterpillar that imagines it to be a butterfly
An imaginal cell is the part of a tadpole that becomes the frog or the part of an acorn that believes itself to be an oak tree. The imaginal cell of the acorn is trapped inside a shell and only breaks out when the conditions are right for it to reach for its potential and the pressure is so great that it can no longer remain. Even once it breaks open it is still in the dirt and must reach down into the depths to anchor itself before it can reach up into the light.
There are many imaginal cells in this body of humanity at this time, imagining the world to be transforming into an entirely new form, previously unknown to us.
Some imaginal cells are brain cells, holding and managing the intellect. Some imaginal cells are liver cells ,holding the anger and being alchemists. Some imaginal cells are lung cells, holding the inspiration, creating the texture. Some imaginal cells are heart cells, holding the love and shining the light that all other cells might recognize their own light.
Sending love to all the other imaginal cells in this transforming community may we always shine the love in our hearts to light the way to a new future, greater than we’ve imagined thus far and greater than the sum of our parts.
