Naren has recently fallen from the oak tree, and his best friend, a little acorn named Shalin, is having a hard time coming to terms with his passing. In the inspiring and emotional conversation that ensues, father oak explains the natural process of life and death to little Shalin.

The Acorn and the Caterpillar

In his absence, cry for him,
But not for so long
That you forget to smile for him.


Oh butterfly, why do you weep?

Because my family and friends do not recognize me. I keep trying to show them my new wings, my new form, but they continually stare at my empty cocoon on the branch of life, and weep. Why can’t they see what I have become? That I am even more beautiful now than when I entered my cocoon. How can I tell them that it was my time, how can I make them aware of my new form so that they may see me everywhere in nature and smile? Perhaps if I fly around the tree, they will look away from the cocoon long enough to see me. Perhaps then, they will recognize me.

You cannot show them, dear, dear butterfly, it is they themselves who must open their own eyes. It will have to be their own choice, in their own time, and as such, maybe they will never recognize you. But soar as high as you can, and hopefully one day, they will learn to smile at all butterflies.

And on that day, they will know you.
And on that day, they will know Me.
