“Celebrity hits like a bomb.
So, you have to find what makes you stable in the storm.
Then, no matter what’s happening around you,
no matter what the hype or the publicity,
you can still manage to make leaps in your work as an artist.”

“Are you ever too old to reinvent yourself?
That’s one of the questions I asked Alina Wheeler … .
Before answering, she insisted on defining “old”.

“Today you’re a cute, clever, smart and able caterpillar.
Yet, you’re limited to ‘crawling’ along as you are now.
However, you’ve been created to become a butterfly,
having more assets and abilities!
You may not ‘see’ it, or realize it, yet.
Nevertheless, its true.
So, don’t think this is as far as you can ever go.
Creator has a plan of metamorphosis for you!
It’s His process for enhancing your life to its best.
You can trust Creator’s metamorphosis working on you.”
“To become a butterfly, metamorphosis is necessary.
If the caterpillar never went through this process of change,
it would never achieve its great destiny
and become its most glorious self.
We, can reach our great destinies
by changing what needs to be changed.”
“Certain caterpillars metamorphose into butterflies; their greatest state.
When the caterpillar-existence ends,
the Creator’s planned, delightful butterfly-existence begins.
Similarly, humans can become their greatest self
by following our Creator’s complete plan.”
