Imagine we have a rose and a butterfly and we give them eachan ego. They meet and fall in love and have a wonderful time together. Then one day the butterfly flies away. Because the rose thinks there was nothing more important than the love of the butterfly, it uproots itself to give chase. What is going to happen to the rose? It dies! Why does it die? Because it made something else more important than staying connected to its source.
Any time we make something else more important than staying connected to our Source (our BEING, Love), then we have disconnected and initiate our own death!
