The migration of the Monarch Butterfly: a Spiritual Experience
The migration of the monarch butterfly is one of the most spectacular phenomena of nature that we can witness in this era. It is a spiritual experience generated by the mystery of why they always arrive at the same place, the astonishment generated by an insect that achieves unthinkable feats for the human being and the sensory spectacle that these creatures create in their hibernation.
As much more of nature, we are just beginning to understand the complicated interweaving of relationships and phenomena that allow this migration of the butterfly. There have been advances in the conservation of the habitat of butterflies in the forest of the sierras of Michoacán and the State of Mexico at the height of the Transverse Neovolcanic Axis. There is also more awareness now about the damaging effects of the large monocultures of mostly corn and soybeans in the central United States, and the use of pesticides and chemical fertilizers in the migratory path of the butterfly. What was previously considered a stubble herb in the fields, now we know that it is the food for this enchanting species.
