>A man found a cocoon of an emperor moth.  He took it home so that he could
>watch the moth come out of the cocoon.  On that day a small opening
>appeared, he sat and watched the moth for several hours as the moth
>struggled to force the body through that little hole.  Then it seemed to stop
>making any progress. It appeared as if it had gotten as far as it could and
>it could go no farther.  It just seemed to be stuck.  Then the man, in his
>kindness, decided to help the moth, so he took a pair of scissors and snipped
>off the remaining bit of the cocoon.  The moth then emerged easily.  But it
>had a swollen body and small, shriveled wings.  The man continued to watch
>the moth because he expected that, at any moment, the wings would enlarge and
>expand to be able to support the body, which would contract in time.  Neither
>happened!  In fact, the little moth spent the rest of its life crawling
>around with a swollen body and shriveled body and shriveled wings.  It never
>was able to fly.
>What the man in his kindness and haste did not understand was that the
>restricting cocoon and the struggle required for the moth to get through
>the tiny opening was the way of forcing fluid from the body of the moth
>into its wings so that it would be ready for flight once it achieved its
>freedom from the cocoon.  Freedom and flight would only come after the
>struggle.  By depriving the moth of a struggle, he deprived the moth of
>health.  Sometimes struggles are exactly what we need in our life.  If we
>were to go through our life without any obstacles, we would be crippled.  We
>would not be as strong as what we could have been.  Give every opportunity a
>chance, leave no room for regrets.
