Turtles have a trait that few animals have. They can grow at any age.
A turtle in a small pond will only grow to a size supported by the pond’s ecosystem. However, if the turtle moves to a larger pond, it will grow larger to fit that ecosystem, no matter the age of the turtle. A turtle can move to larger and larger ponds, lakes, and expansive ecosystems. With each move is a chance to grow. In fact, the ability to grow at any age is built into the DNA of turtles.
So it is with our Turtle Family. Each of us gradually moves to larger and larger emotional ecosystems. We expand our minds and our experiences on our path to be the best people we can be. Each expansion, while initially difficult, allows us to become wiser, more resilient people. We experience more insight, more compassion, more love, and more of everything as we grow. It is never too late to grow.
One word of caution. In the wild, a turtle that moves from a large lake back to a pond will no longer be comfortable there. In fact, they risk sickness, even death, because the ecosystem cannot support a turtle of that size. It is the same with members of our Turtle Family. Moving backwards to a smaller emotional ecosystem brings emotional peril. Do not fear this, but be aware. We Turtles have all taken missteps backwards, it is part of the learning process. We will remain united with our Turtle Family to help support each other emotionally should one ever happen upon this circumstance. We will continually offer our insights into how to move to ever-growing emotional ecosystems as we all move forward on our path through life.
