Law of Process


“Do it right or do it over.”


Once upon a time, there was a little caterpillar. The whole day, it was eating, galling, and gorging. After a few days, it grew so thick it could barely move. Then, in its natural progression following the Law of Process, it came to rest and cocooned itself underneath a big leaf. Once trapped in the hard shell, its old form started to die, becoming a messy soup.

Slowly, new so-called imaginal cells formed. Out of fear, the old cells fought against the newly emerging ones. However, in a clever move, the new ones made clusters stronger and more resilient. At some point, the new cells took over, and the resistant old cells died. Yet, some old ones were adaptable and contributed to the new organism. Finally, the new form fully emerged inside the cocoon, and the butterfly’s shape became visible. Still, it has not finished its evolution. Freeing the butterfly at this stage would be a stillbirth.

The emergence of the new life form must honor the process. After a few more days of growing more robust, the hard shell of the cocoon cracked open. Out of it came a beautiful butterfly ready to unfold its wings and fly.

This story tells us that every little step is a necessary part of the process. We must refrain from bypassing or circumventing any part, or we will fall back. The not fully emerged new part will immaturely die, and we need to recreate it.


We fill our lives with goals and achievements. Unfortunately, often, we are so focused on the result that we forget the process of getting there. Leaping ahead inevitably throws us back since we ignored the process. Likewise, bypassing eventually always snaps back.

The other trap we might fall into is getting lost in a particular step of the process. Being stuck hinders our progress, and often, we get caught up in unimportant details. So, it is essential to be aware of both extremes, the bypassing and the trap.

Alchemy is a perfect example of this process. It uses the 7-step transformation formula for accelerated bodily and spiritual evolution. It provides a clear framework for raising our consciousness. Thus, we avoid falling back into old unhealthy habits, toxic patterns, and limiting beliefs. By embodying the teaching of ancient Alchemy, we can start appreciating hardships and challenges as learning lessons without getting stuck in them. It truly is the wisdom that survived for thousands of years for a good reason. Alchemy describes the evolution of everything from a universe to a butterfly to humanity. By consciously walking this path, we transform ourselves from caterpillar to butterfly.
