Pupa or Chrysalis or Cocoon?

“Understand that the hardest times in life to go through are when you are transforming from one version of yourself to another” Mysticool


It’s a life stage of a moth or butterfly or other insect.

Any insect other than a butterfly undergoes metamorphosis into an adult, and the stage before becoming an adult is called a pupa.


The pupa of a butterfly is called a chrysalis.


A cocoon is a hard protective outer covering woven by the moth or butterfly to cover the pupa. It attaches the cocoon to a leaf or branch or any surface. The idea is to keep pupa safe from predators. 


All of us must have inspiration from the butterfly’s life cycle.

My friend, every stage of the development of the butterfly teaches us beautiful lessons.

“Patience doesn’t mean making a pact with the devil or denial, ignoring our emotions and aspirations. It means being wholeheartedly engaged in the process that’s unfolding, rather than ripping open a budding flower or demanding a caterpillar to hurry up and get that chrysalis stage over with.” Sharon Salzberg.

Thank you.

Namaste 🙏🙏🙏
