In order to create their beautiful plumage peacocks sometimes eat thorns. Hard pointed razor like objects are processed in their abdomens and then contribute to feathers with colors and shapes unmatched throughout nature for their extraordinary beauty. So it is with us, that which is the hardest to digest , to process , to integrate into our life experiences is what ultimately transforms us in a positive way. We become who we are meant to be.
